This measure applies to the following materials:
- Carbon composite
- Plastics or elastomers
In the case of carbon composites, electrical conductivity can be an indicator of the proximity between carbon fibers.
Electrical conductivity is an essential quality of graphite because this material is often used for manufacturing electrodes.
More and more often, conductive plastics or elastomers are encountered in life. At the base, these materials are not conductive, but manufacturers add a small amount of metal particles in their composition to give them special physical properties. In the case of vehicle manufacturing, for example, the conductive elastomer constituting the tires makes it possible to evacuate the electrical energy provided during a lightning stroke, or to dissipate static electricity accumulated during a journey, thereby eliminating discharges. unpleasant for persons and dangerous for electronic devices.
