Historically, engineers have used metals to conduct heat and electricity, while ceramics, glass and plastics have been used as insulators. Recent developments in conductive plastics based on a number of special modifiers have allowed a unique combination of the design and processing economics of plastics coupled with the desired conductivity of metal. Applications for these unusual resin composites include electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding, static charge dissipation, heat dissipations, and resistive heating.
