Products - Additive Masterbatches
Plastics are excellent insulator but can support to build-up of high static charges due to triboelectric effect. Static electrical charges are produced by separation caused by friction of two materials between each other. Such as during extrusion, film passes over rollers or by incidental contact between plastic parts during transport or storage. The build-up of static charges can pose difficulties, such as handling, attraction of dust from atmosphere, electrical shock, etc.
The phenomenon is more prominent in presence of moisture. ‘Anti-static’ agents are chemicals, which eliminates the risk of built-up charges in a plastic product. There are two types of ‘Anti-static’ agents, namely, External and Internal.
External ‘Anti-static’ agent is coated on the surface of a product to reduce static charge. However, the effect is limited. Internal ‘Anti-static’ agent when incorporated in plastics through a suitable masterbatch form during processing, the chemical homogeneously distribute in the plastics. Gradually it migrates to the surface of the product and either gives a conductive surface coating or by absorbing atmospheric moisture to improve surface conductivity.
BLS ANTISTAT Masterbatch is based on pure anti static agent to neutralize the charges on the surface of the polymer. By using BLS ANTISTAT Masterbatch, following problems will be reduced or eliminated.
• Dust pick-up
• Handling problem
• Electronic static discharge damaging electronic equipments
BLS ANTISTAT Masterbatch can be tailored to modify PE, PP, EVA, PET, etc.
