WELLS PLASTIC ANTISTATICS

Antistatic agents can be added to polymers to minimize the natural tendency of most plastics to accumulate static charges.

Antistatics are based mainly based on migratory additive systems, which can give fast and long term stable antistatic properties. Migratory additives rely upon the presence of atmospheric humidity to give optimum performance.

The speed of antistatic effect and its duration can be optimised through careful choice of the additive. The migration rate is determined by a number of factors including the relative compatibility of the additive and the polymer, polymer crystallinity, total additive formulation, concentration of the antistatic additive and temperature.

Non-migratory antistatic systems are also available. These will give immediate and permanent antistatic performance.
