Anti-Static Carbon Fibres

DONACARBO pitch-based carbon fibres are an excellent choice in the formulation of anti-static and conductive coatings and plastics. One of the main application areas is for the formulation of anti-static top coats for flooring put down in sensitive areas, such as microelectronic clean rooms or flammable material storage areas. DONACARBO can be easily incorporated into a wide variety of polymers for use in parts such as pump housings, electrical appliances and high performance sealings used in automotive. 

They are available in either carbonised or graphitised form. Further processing by chopping or milling provides a variety of fibre lengths. In comparison to carbon black and graphite, DONACARBO has a lower impact on colour and so is well suited to applications where lighter colours are required.


    • Carbon fibres based on coal tar pitch.

    • Fibre diameter of 13 microns. Fibre lengths ranging from 110 microns up to 6 mm.

    • Available as graphitised or carbonised forms for different levels of performance.

    • Electrically conductive.

    • Chemically inert.


    • Improves electrical conductivity. Used to formulate antistatic and conductive coatings and thermoplastics.

    • Alternative to carbon black or graphite where light colours are required. Easier to tint.

    • Improves chemical stability of the finished product.

    • Provides reduced shrinkage, reduced wear and enhanced thermal stability when used in thermoplastics.

    • Low addition levels required for anti-static performance.

Typical Applications

    • Anti-static or conductive flooring screeds.

    • Anti-static or conductive coatings.

    • Anti-static or conductive thermoplastics.

    • High grade sealing gaskets.

    • High temperature isolation parts.

    • Brake pads.
