Conductive TubingConductive I.D. and Fully Conductive
|For insulation purposes the high resistivity of plastics is an advantage but, in some cases, it can be a serious disadvantage as it results in high, static
charge, build up; this in turn can result in dust pick-up and/or spark generation. The established way of improving conductivity is by adding a
conductive filler such as, a high structure, carbon black. The addition of lubricants can minimize the generation of static while the addition of
some semi-incompatible liquids can cause static to leak away.
TexLoc offers a wide variety of anti-static and conductive tubing to fit each customer’s specific needs in smooth-bore or convoluted form. This tubing may be supplied with a fully conductive liner and also, a fully conductive tube.
Fully conductive tubes are available in TEXfluor™ PTFE and TEXfluor™ PFA. Industrial grade conductivity conforms to MIL-DTL-27267C having a minimum conductance of 10-20 micro amps with 1,000 vdc applied over a 14" length. Upon special request an ISO grade conforming to a maximum of a 1 mega ohm resistance over a one meter length when tested in accordance with ISO 8031 is available.
Some of the many uses for these products include:
