A new line of electrically conductive olefinic TPVs from RTP Co., Winona, Minn., features Shore A hardnesses of 55 to 85 for replacing conductive EPDM rubber. Four ESD C 2800 B series grades feature a volume resistivity of 100 ohm-cm and a wide processing window. They also reportedly offer high tear strength and easy moldability. Lower viscosity is cited as an advantage over previous conductive TPVs. (For complete properties, visit www.ptonline.com/plaspec.) (800) 433-4787 • www.rtpcompany.com
