Introduction of antistatic agent for plastic


Antistatic agent for plastic is fully-formulated copolymer and composite antioxidant to provide electrical conductivity in plastic end products. Antistatic agent for plastic is used to protect against premature failure or damage due to electrostatic discharge in a variety of applications such as automotive fuel systems,electronic and electrical packaging and equipment, and other plastics applications.

INCHR’s comprehensive antistatic agent for plastic includes products produced with a broad array of polymers. These products can help customers meet specific electrical, rheological, and mechanical endproduct performance needs. Additionally, products are available for use in a various processing methods, including blown film extrusion, sheet and profile extrusion, injection moulding, blow moulding, and others.

Antistatic agent for plastic PS is carefully formulated product based on polyether copolymer.The addition level and the dispersion quality are key factors for achieving good surface resisitivity or low electrical resistivity.Besides the antistatic agent for plastic PS,we provide permanent agent for PP,PE,TPU,POM,ABS,PBT,PA,PET.




Processing antistatic agent for plastic


As the organic copolymer contained in the antistatic agent for plastic is hygroscopic, they should be stored in a dry place. Unless specified in the TDS for the specific grade, all antistatic agents for plastic  need to be predried before processing. Processing an undried antistatic agents with a high moisture content can result in deficiencies in the final product, such as surface blemishes in molded parts, holes in blown film, and other undesirable results.


antistatic agent for plastic can usually be processed on conventional processing equipment. To promote good electrical and mechanical properties of the material, it is advisable to process the compounds under low shear conditions. In fact, antistatic agent incorporated compounds are highly shear sensitive. Too much shear can deteriorate antistatic networks and reduce resistivity. Processing equipment and parameters should be carefully selected so that the shear generated is kept to a minimum. For more details about specific processing techniques please refer to the processing guidelines. Therefore, it is advisable to measure and monitor the electrical resistivity during processing.




Applications of antistatic agent for plastic

Injetion moulding:

Typical injection moulding applications for antistatic agent ,items such as electrically antistatic boxes and other types of containers for the protection of electronic components against electrostatic discharge (ESD).Where ESD protection is required for safety reasons, antistatic compounds can be injection molded to produce equipment housings, fan blades, pallets, caps, valves, and other products that can mitigate ESD.In automotive applications, the main use of injection molded antistatic compounds is in parts for fuel systems such as fuel inlets and filler caps.

Blown Film Extrusion:

Film for packaging of electronic components

  • Film for photographic applications
  • Liners for big bags for explosive powders
  • Packaging materials for explosive powders or other substances used

Sheet extrusion:

antistatic agent for plastic is widely used in the electronics industry.

Examples of applications are:

  • PS carrier tapes
  • PS/PP thermoformed trays
  • HDPE,POM,ABS sheet
  • PP foam

Antistaitic agent compounds are also used in industrial applications such as PVC Tubes, PE pipes, PA corrugated tubes for hazardous areas (mines, powder or chemical factories)




Future industry trend

With the continuous advancement of  technology and consumers’ increasing requirements , antistatic agent for plastics have bright prospects in the semi conductor,electronics,automotive field. In the future, our R&D technicians will continue to explore new materials, new processes and new technologies to improve the conductive and anti-static properties of the materials. At the same time, efforts will also be made to reduce the cost and environmental impact of conductive antistatic materials and contribute to the sustainable development of the manufacturing industry.
