Sprayable Conductive Coating for Plastics

The IBM Technical Disclosure Bulletin of January, 1974, Vol. 16, No. 8, page 2766 describes a conductive coating for plastics. The following formulation has similar properties and is particularly adapted for application by spraying.

The mixture comprises 200 parts by weight of submicron TiC particles, 20 parts by weight of LEXAN*, and 600 parts by volume of CHCL(3).

The plastic (such as ABS, NORYL*, LEXAN, PVC, etc.) is spray coated. The coating will dry in three to five minutes at room temperature.

Instead of LEXAN, another binder (such as methanol-soluble nylon) could be used. The binder should be soluble in a solvent which boils at more than about 60 degrees C, but not so high as to extend flash-off time beyond about five to ten minutes. * Trademarks of the General Electric Company
