Also new is Geloy HRA170D PC/ASA resin with permanent antistatic performance to keep interior parts looking fresh and clean. Instead of incorporating a slip agent, this compound uses an electrically conductive additive to maintain a surface-resistivity of 1012 ohm/sq. Since color pigments can have a big influence on antistatic properties, SABIC offers this compound in a wide range of precolored versions. Target uses include trim, interior mirror housings, and overhead consoles. It is based on Geloy HRA170 compounds, which has been used for several years in auto interior trim.
