Why to use antistatic?
Plastics tend to accumulate electrical charges during manufacture and use due to their high resistivity. This can lead to problems at the manufacturing/marketing stage (attraction of dust particles) and, more seriously, can cause fires and explosions through electrical discharges that can be released in the form of sparks.
What solution do we propose?
Static electricity is a surface phenomenon. The dissipation of static charges, induced by decreasing surface resistivity through the use of antistatic additives, is the objective.
What are the antistatic additives and how do they work?
The antistatic additives used by Kompuestos are internal, non-permanent and non-ionic. These additives migrate to the surface of the plastic, creating at hin layer of moisture, dissipating static electricity.
The antistatic additives, depending on their nature, migrate to the surface of the plastic at different speeds and confer short- or long-term antistatic properties; used in combination a synergy effect is achieved that enhances their effect.
- Avoid accumulation of static electricity during processing and use of plastics
- Avoid dust deposits on plastic articles
Kompuestos offers highly effective antistatic masterbatches for polyolefins, design to prevent the accumulation of static electricity in theplastic surface, with a short- term or long- term effect (synergic) and approved for food contactaccording to Regulation (EU) 10/2011 and FDA 21CFR.
