English term or phrase:carbon sloughing
context: "carbon sloughing" is when carbon poweder contained in resin compounds comes out of the part on contact with other components, sometimes leading to contamination
Thank you for your note, Oktay. I don't know if this term is used correctly here. This a text related to thermoplastic compounds. Some compounds are filled with carbon powder to manipulate their conductive qualities. The problem is that this carbon powder comes out of the parts under particular conditions of use, leading to contamination (e.g. parts for use in office machines, for protection form electrostatic discharge). Hope this is helpful.
