The electrical resistivity, mechanical properties, outgassing, ion contamination and particle-shedding characteristics of new electrostatic dissipative (ESD) injection moldable thermoplastic composites containing carbon black and glass fibers were studied. The results for polypropylene, polybutylene terephthalate and polycarbonate based compounds were(More)
The amount of carbon black required to impart electrical conductivity to an insulating polymer can be dramatically reduced by its selective localization in a multi-component system which includes the insulating polymer. This report describes property-structure relationships of polypropylene/nylon/glass fiber (PP/PA/GF) composites with consistent resistivity(More)
Analysis of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) is a promising approach for non-invasive, fast and potentially inexpensive diagnostics. Here, we present a new methodology for profiling the body chemistry by using the volatile fraction of molecules in various body fluids. Using mass spectrometry and cross-reactive nanomaterial-based sensors array, we(More)
New static dissipative thermoplastic materials for injection molding and corrugated packaging have been recently developed based on the selective localization of carbon black in a multi-component system. This paper analyses the cleanroom compatibility of these new compounds with consistent resistivities within the desired static dissipative range (10/sup(More)
