Once they are added to the polymer during the extrusion process, our antistatic additives migrate to the surface, giving the customer a finished product with the ability to not accumulate dust when it has been stored for a long period of time.
When shopping in a supermarket or household store, which article would you choose? The dusty bottle or the bright and shiny one, which most likely containing antistatic additives. However, the need for antistatic additives does not stop with aesthetic aspects.
In many industrial applications, antistatic properties are needed to prevent electric discharge during the filling or loading of plastic packaging, which can initiate fires or dust explosions. During processing they prevent fouling, packaging film defects caused by sparks and improve release of injection or blow molded articles.
Dosing liquid or paste-form antistatic additives can be a challenge. That’s why we offer high-performance concentrates. They reduce cleaning time of dosing systems and minimize waste, all while giving the advantage of our antistatic additives.
From fast antistatic action, long-lasting antistatic properties, solid or liquid products, or cost efficient, easy-to-dose high-concentrate solutions; whatever your requirements, we offer the product to match.
