ABSCOM MS170AX

Meets the latest ATEX certification requirements.

Kedu Polymers Industries BV launches together with Polymer Compounders Ltd a new ABS grade for electronic housings used in explosive environments. ABSCOM MS170AX is an inhouse developed, High impact grade, which was formerly used in industrial safety helmets. The material has low surface and volume resistivity of < 109 Ω to meet the latest ATEX certification requirements. Without acting as a Faraday Cage thus allowing radio signals for GPS and Bluetooth to enter and exit the case body.

Geotech, to the best of their knowledge, are one of the first to manufacture landfill and biogas portable equipment for use in potentially explosive atmosphere to the latest ATEX standards because of this innovation.

This development has proven that it is possible to achieve good levels of conductivity in conjunction with high impact values for rugged electronic handheld devices with radio signals delivered and received from the outside world in the ever-evolving age of information technology. This could benefit many other manufacturers of devices that require similar performance in the future.
