Conductive Plastic

Most plastics are good electical insulators. So the term conductive plastics can be misinforming. Polyethylene , polystyrene, polypropylene, polyesters, and phenolics are all good choices. Two plastics that that are conductive are the polyacetylene & polyphthalocyanine. They are made conductive when they have metals added to them. They are very expensive and are not completely safe. They are not items that USP currently carries.
