BÜFA -Conductive-Line series receives OCSiAL Industry Award

Plastics, plastic-coated materials and lightweight construction materials are used in all spheres of life today. As opposed to metallic surfaces, these surfaces are, as a rule, electrical regulators. Through friction, electric fields or flowing fluids, electrostatic charging can occur with such insulated surfaces. In many branches, for example vehicle and airplane construction, this can be life-threatening or cause enormous material damage. Suitable coatings can effectively prevent this. 

BÜFA Composite Systems offers a new line of conductive gelcoats, resins and concentrates all the way to individual solutions for all branches. Their superb looks – with individual colouring and high-gloss surfaces – are combined with excellent product properties such as constant electrostatic dissipation, very good weathering properties and resistance to chemicals. Thanks to the use of nano-technology, all of the products in the BÜFA -Conductive-Line guarantee high process reliability and reproducibility as well as low viscosity compared to conventional conductive systems. BÜFA Composite Systems received the OCSiAL Industry Award for the development of innovative, conductive products that are used in various branches. The special coatings are used to effectively prevent static charges on plastic surfaces. OCSiAL produces so-called single-wall carbon nanotubes on an industrial scale and is engaged in the field of nanotechnology research and development. During the NanoSummit 2017 international symposium in Luxembourg, a total of five companies were honoured, and BÜFA Composite Systems was the only European prize winner. 

Single-wall nanotubes are used in the BÜFA®-Conductive-Line. Using a special technique, the nanotubes are separated and then added to the coating material. Thanks to the use of nanotechnology, the surfaces have outstanding gloss and weather resistance. Along with these advantages, coloured as well as conductive materials can now also be produced.
