Electrically conductive plastics are polymer materials capable of conducting electrical current. Generally, plastics are not good conductors of electricity as they consist of non-conductive molecules. However, with the addition of conductive fillers or additives, some plastics can develop electrically conductive properties. Examples of conductive plastics include polyaniline, polypyrrole, polythiophene, and some carbon nanomaterials like graphene and carbon nanotubes.
Electrically conductive plastics already serve diverse commercial applications ranging from anti-static packaging to protect sensitive electronics during transport and storage to electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding housings that block ambient signals which could disrupt electronic component operation. They are also increasingly used in automotive and advanced electronics applications. Emerging applications and markets include Electric vehicle systems, Stretchable electronics, Smart fabrics, Medical devices, 3D printed electronics, and Renewable energy and Flexible displays.
