These masterbatches are based on fatty acid ester type of anti static agents to neutralize the charges on the surface of the polymer. By using anti static additives, problems caused by static electricity charge will be reduced or eliminated. These problems are:
AddKan Antistatic Masterbatch works by migrating to the surface of the polymer. It functions usually in a molecular or multi-molecular layer and attracts water molecules from the atmosphere. The water lowers the surface resistivity from the approximate value of 1014 – 1015 ohms for most polymers (including styrenics and polyolefinics) to 1011- 108 ohm . Normal addition levels of the 10% active content masterbatch is 3-5%.
Antistatic master batches for appliance parts :
These components are used in manufacturing of appliances parts which are used in washing machines, refrigerators etc..Precautions should be maintained to keep these parts dust free owing to accumulation of static charges. These master batches are developed using carefully selected anti-static agents that induce the conductivity to the components, eliminating static charges without affecting aesthetics of the components including clarity, etc..
Antistatic master batches for electronic applications :
The use of anti-static agents in polymer components of electronic applications plays a pivotal role, as static charges can result in electronic discharge e.g., when films come in contact with sensitive electronic equipment during packing or when electronic components stored in plastic bin for longer period can damage the components. We offer anti static masterbatch based on amine derivative agents for the above application even under low relative humidity conditions.
AddKan Antistatic Masterbatches:
There are two types of Antistatic Masterbatch available:- Antistatic Economic Masterbatch (AD/01/0009) – Used mainly in films especially for electronic components to reduce static charge.
