Beki-Shield® GR

Beki-shield GR
Beki-Shield® GR 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. The Beki-Shield® metal fibers are also available in continuous bundles.

Technical specifications

The following specifications represent the standard Beki-Shield® GR75 and Beki-Shield® GR90 range.
Contact Bekaert to discuss application specific requirements like coatings and compatibility. The Beki-shield® GR90 product has only 10% sizing in comparison with the Beki-Shield® GR75 which has also an additional coating. The removing of the additional coating layer with the Beki-Shield® will make the product more compatible with a larger variety of base polymer and will give you more control over the final technical properties of the end component.
