Polyvel’s antistatic masterbatches are more cost effective than any other commercially available alternative.
Our antistat masterbatch in a plastic film reduces the film’s surface resistivity (increases conductivity) because a hygroscopic, conductive, aqueous layer is formed on the film surface. This layer discharges static electricity built up by the triboelectric (frictional) action.
Bubble pack is used to protect circuit boards; electrical circuits can be shorted unless the plastic packaging is antistatic.
Filling containers with powders generates a dangerous static charge; antistatic polyethylene drum liners effectively dissipate the charge.
Nuisance dust build up on plastic parts is eliminated with antistatic resin.
All Polyvel antistat masterbatches comply with FDA and EC food contact standards.
VS-E09 is the choice for cast and blown mono and multilayer LDPE.
CM-P01 is used in extruded sheet, blown film, and injection molded polypropylene.
