Electrically Conductive Materials

Antimony Tin Oxide (ATO) and ATO-Coated Titanium Dioxide (TiO2)

Electroconductive materials, available in acicular and spherical shapes, that enable highly conductive clear, white, and colored coatings, plastics, adhesives and more.

Electrically Conductive Materials

Formulators know the challenge of balancing additive properties when formulating conductive materials, such as coatings, plastics and other end-use applications. Alternate materials can make electroconductivity difficult to customize and may provide poor stability and inconsistent conductivity performance.

Using ATO-based additives addresses these challenges. Featuring both ATO and ATO-coated TiO2, Nagase supplies functional materials with higher conductivity, greater stability, and excellent non-migratory anti-static performance—and can require less additive per formulation when compared to traditional alternatives.

Nagase is uniquely positioned to help you develop highly effective electroconductive coatings, plastics, fibers, or adhesives.
