To protect against electrostatic discharge (ESD), L and A Container uses an RTP 100 Series conductive polypropylene compound to mould its Stat-Cons two-piece ESD-protective containers.

The material, from custom compounder RTP Company, dissipates the electrostatic charge before it can accumulate to dangerous levels, thus preventing product damage.

The containers are used to ship valuable components such as electronics parts, automotive airbag detonators and high explosives.

To ensure its finished containers meet specifications, L and A Container carefully checks every raw material it receives.

Ed Loritz, L and A Container’s vice-president of sales and marketing, said: ‘Our containers require a surface resistivity of 10E3 ohm/sq to 10E5ohm/sq to provide adequate ESD protection.

‘And compounds from RTP Company consistently meet our stringent requirements,’ he added.

The RTP 100 Series conductive polypropylene compound is used to manufacture Stat-Cons containers in a number of standard sizes, as well as custom containers for speciality applications.

L and A Container also manufactures a selection of other rigid plastic containers using RTP Company materials.
