SABIC INNOVATIVE PLASTICS, MANNHEIM, GERMANY. Providing permanent anti-static properties, the Geloy HRA170D compound is designed to help automotive interiors keep that factory-fresh appearance over years of use. Compared to conventional materials that tend to attract dust, this new Geloy compound repels dust. Instead of using a slipping agent, the product uses an additive to ensure anti-dust performance with a surface resistivity of [10.sup.12] [OMEGA]. To avoid the influence of color pigment loading on anti-static properties, SABIC Innovative Plastics makes the compound in a wide range of colors, so molders do not have to add colorants. Target applications include trims, interior mirror housings, and overhead consoles. The new compound is based on the Geloy HRA170 compound, which has been used successfully for automotive interior trim components for several years.
