The perfect fit for cable ESD drain...

Benvic, well-known in Europe for PVC compounds and eco-sensitive solutions, has launched a range of polymer grades through 2021 that will help eliminate unwanted static and electrical discharge from a variety of products. Named ProVinyl KCC the new conductive polymers will help dissipate electricity, protecting and regulating products as diverse as cabling, packaging, tubing and flooring as well as the environments in which they are used.

Health and safety factors, preventing blast and fire risks, data protection and other issues are all at stake – when it comes to Electrostatic Discharge (ESD). To overcome these concerns Benvic’s research and development teams have created a number of compounds that can be readily used in plastics extrusion and injection moulding. “Speed to market and ease of polymer processing have been key to us in designing these specialty materials” says Benvic Product Manager, Philippe Gressier.

The industrial worlds of cabling and electrical equipment immediately need the protection that ProVinyl KCC can provide: these markets include cables for electrical equipment and sensors that operate at very low voltages. In order to protect these operations from fluctuation and disturbance, an antistatic drain (ESD) is directly integrated in the polymer sheath of the cable, thus ensuring stability of conductivity.

The ProVinyl KCC protection is therefore particularly suitable for applications with high reliability and failsafe requirements, such as medical monitoring devices or automotive.
