Beki-Shield® stainless steel fibers for conductive plastics

Bekaert Beki-Shield® stainless steel fibers for conductive plastics
Beki-Shield® is a stainless steel filler material used in plastic compounds to provide electrical conductive properties.  They can be used as a master-batch and have been designed for easy dispersion into the polymer matrix for both injection molding (dry blend) and for compounding. Beki-Shield® is also available in rovings.


Reduce your filler volume

Compared to alternative solutions such as carbon black or carbon fibers, Beki-Shield® meets the specifications and regulations for Electro-Magnetic Interference (EMI) and Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) at much lower volumes.

Easy to mold - use with any color

The low fiber dosages make the plastic easier to mold. Secondary operations can be eliminated as fibers can be processed in injection molding and compounding (one-shot process). The Beki-Shield materials are compatible with different colors. It preserves the mechanical properties of the virgin plastic, making it more resistant to impact. A lower filler volume also enables compounders, injection molders and OEM’s to lower their ecological footprint.

Compatible with any polymer

Typically, the fibers are chopped and bound together with polymeric binders specified for various polymer resins. They can be used as a master-batch and have been designed for easy dispersion into the polymer matrix for both injection molding (dry blend) and for compounding. Beki-Shield® is also available in rovings.
