Electrically conductive & antistatic coatings
Electrically conductive coatings are becoming increasingly important. One reason for this is regulations for explosion protection, such as the ATEX directives of the European Union. Good to know: correctly modified, most coating materials can derive electrostatic charges.
Typical tasks and fields of application of antistatic materials:
- Non-conductible coatings suppress electrostatic charges and prevent dust accumulation and electric fields in an explosive environment
- Pipes, containers, stackable containers or packaging that are antistatic coated, facilitate the storage and transport of highly flammable goods
- Chemical industry
- Semiconductor industry
- Maintenance / Repair
- Machinery and plant engineering
- Pharmaceutical industry
- Packaging industry

Testing of coatings
We can test the surface resistance and the contact resistance for you. The specific surface resistance (leakage resistance) is electrical resistance, which is opposed to the current flow between two electrodes, which are mounted on the surface of the coating. The contact resistance is the resistance to the current flow through the coating. Restriction: The usual measurement methods for porosity testing fail with electrically conductive coatings.
