Conductive rubber is a common term referring to any rubberized material that has conductive properties. These rubbers have electrical or thermal or combined conductive properties that help in eliminating overheating, electromagnetic radiation, and/or static discharge. Various types of materials, such as silicone, fluorosilicone, and ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM), are being used to prepare conductive rubbers. Conductive rubber is used in many industries such as automotive & transportation, electronics & electronics, industrial machines, and others including construction and food & beverages. The increasing demand for lightweight automobile parts for better fuel efficiency and lower emission is driving the market of conductive rubbers.
