Are all thermoplastic polyolefins created equal?

Thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) is one of the fastest growing commercial roofing systems on the market. Developed in Europe in the 1970s, TPO was introduced to the U.S. market in the late 1980s and has become the dominant installed roof system in the industry; now used on 53% of commercial roofs, according to the American Institute of Architects.

Electrically conductive elastomers based on NR and polyaniline

Natural rubber is an electrically insulating material, but introduction of conductive fillers like carbon based materials (carbon black, graphite, carbon nanofibers or nanotubes) or metal fillers can increase the conductivity of the resulting composite. These materials are frequently used for electromagnetic/radiofrequency interference (EMI/RFI) shielding, and laboratory and military uses.
