As the term suggests, a conductive coating is a coating that conducts electrical current. It makes up a large proportion of conductive solid materials. This can be silver, copper or graphite. Synthetic resins and solvent-based paints are often used as a liquid component. Due to its high solid content (> 80%), the viscosity of a conductive coating is often very high. In order to ensure the maximum possible contact area between the particles and therefore the optimal conductivity, it is important to achieve a small particle size.
With its extensive range of DISPERMAT® machines, VMA-Getzmann offers the dispersion and grinding solutions which are aimed at processing highly viscous products. Ceramic materials can also be used to counteract abrasive product properties.
