CarboCond are electrically conductive epoxy resins filled with carbon nanoparticles. They exhibit very much improved mechanical properties compared to conventional systems. 

Products of the CarboCond series are electrically conductive, solvent-free and stable crystalizing epoxy resins. They consist of low-molecular bisphenol A and bisphenol F components, and contain carbon nanoparticles. The electrical conductivity of CarboCond can be optimized for a very wide selection of applications by simply varying the carbon concentration.

CarboCond exhibits numerous advantages compared to conventional systems filled with carbon black or graphite:

  • unequaled electrical conductivity (specific resistance in the region of 10² Ω ∙cm)
  • substantially improved mechanical properties compared to commercial, electrically conductive epoxy resin systems
  • adjustable electrical conductivity through matched carbon content
  • obtainable in different versions, e.g. for mold making or coatings

CarboCond products have dynamic viscosity of 3 to 13Pa·s. They consist of low-molecular epoxy resins based on bisphenol A and F, and contain carbon nanoparticles plus graphite.

Aimed at as wide a range of applications as possible, CarboCond is obtainable in two basic types for different viscosity and hardening parameters:

  • CarboCond 171, with dynamic viscosity of approx. 13 Pa∙s, is suitable for cold, warm or hot hardening
  • CarboCond 471 is reactively diluted, its dynamic viscosity is approx. 3 Pa∙s, and it is suitable for cold or warm hardening.

The two systems come in three different ranges of conductivity:

  • 0.1 weight % carbon nanoparticles, specific resistance 105 to 107 Ω ∙cm
  • 0.4 weight % carbon nanoparticles, specific resistance 103 to 105 Ω ∙cm
  • 0.6 weight % carbon nanoparticles, specific resistance 102 to 103 Ω ∙cm

CarboCond can be used wherever very high electrical conductivity is needed, e.g.

  • Floors
  • Coatings
  • cast parts
  • ESD protective components

CarboCond products are compatible with very different epoxy resin systems, and can also serve as a master batch in various concentrations. The resulting specific resistance will implement diverse standards in the area of ESD/explosion protection.

A number of aminic and anhydrous hardeners are obtainable for CarboCond.
