An antistatic agent is a compound used for treatment of materials or their surfaces in order to reduce buildup of static electricity .Triboelectriceffect An electrical charge produced by friction Additive migrate to the surface to dissipate static charge through association with moisture in the air Hdrophobic side interacts with surface of the material, Hydrophilic side interacts with air moisture and binds the water molecules
- Eliminates electrostatic problems
- Reduces dust contamination
- Reduces cycle time by providing faster mold release effect
- Improves surface finish of moulded articles Polyolefin films and moulded products.
