Conpads™ Conductive Grounding Pads
Stockwell Elastomerics' Conpads™ are heavy-duty conductive grounding pads designed for cushioning and grounding rocket motors. Smaller versions are available for cushioning and grounding missiles. Conpads™ are constructed from silicone sponge rubber and a layer of electrically conductive carbon filled silicone rubber. There are several firmness options to select from based on the specific application. These custom fabricated rocket motor mounting pads protect solid fuel rocket motors by safely grounding ESD and cushioning motor housings against impact and vibration.
Conpads™ are known for their long term ESD protection in both indoor and outdoor environments. The silicone construction is UV and ozone resistant and remains flexible at subzero temperatures, allowing Conpads™ to maintain their cushioning duties in freezing conditions. Conpads™ ESD grounding products have effectively served as rocket motor mounting pads for over 20 years at US Air Force base installations, storage depots and on ground support equipment including recent commercial rocket flights used to place communication satellites into orbit. The combined cushioning and ESD grounding properties are enabling the safe handling of rocket motors.
Conpads™ conductive grounding pads can be bonded to aluminum or steel chocks with RTV60-CON carbon filled conductive silicone adhesive.
