Antistatic Agents

Different antistatic agents for polymers based on fatty acids

Antistatic Agents

Antistats have the ability to absorb moisture. When the antistats are incorporated into the polymer, an electrically condutive film is formed on the surface of the polymer allowing for the static charges to dissipate. Their mechanism consists of a hydrophobic end which ensures that the antistat is attached to the polymer surface and a polar end which absorbs the water molecules, thus ensuring the electric conductivity.
