What makes plastic antistatic?

In some environments that are sensitive to static electricity, such as places where electronic and electrical equipment are manufactured and used, static electricity accumulated on plastics may interfere with the normal operation of the equipment and even cause equipment damage, malfunction, or malfunction.

Secondly, static electricity may absorb tiny particles such as dust, affecting the appearance and cleanliness of the product, which is detrimental to some precision products or occasions with high cleanliness requirements.

Furthermore, under certain circumstances, electrostatic discharge may produce sparks, posing a potential risk of fire or explosion, especially in environments where flammable gases and dust are present.

In addition, for some plastic products that require frequent contact with people, such as some tool handles, anti-static can avoid discomfort caused by static electricity to the human body, such as electric shock sensation. Therefore, to ensure product quality, production safety, and user experience, it is necessary to anti-static treatment of plastics.

Here are several ways to make plastic antistatic :

  1. Add anti-static agent: Add a specific anti-static agent to the plastic raw material to form a conductive network inside the plastic to conduct static electricity away.
  2. Blending conductive fillers: such as carbon black, metal powder, etc., to improve the conductivity of plastics.
  3. Surface treatment: Treat the surface of plastic products, such as applying anti-static coating, etc.

Anti-static plastics are widely used in industries that are sensitive to static electricity, such as electronics, semiconductors, and precision instruments. They can reduce the adverse effects of static electricity on product quality and production processes, such as preventing static electricity from adsorbing dust and preventing electrostatic discharge from damaging electronic components.


When choosing plastic anti-static, you need to consider the following factors:

  • Thermal Stability: Plastic antistatic should be able to remain stable within the plastic’s processing temperature range without decomposing or failing.
  • Compatibility: Antistatic agents should have good compatibility with plastics and other additives and should not affect the performance of the plastic.
  • Antistatic effect: Different antistatic agents may have different antistatic effects in different plastics, and the appropriate variety and dosage need to be selected according to specific needs.
  • Processing performance: Plastic anti-static should not affect the processing performance of plastics, such as extrusion, injection molding, blow molding, etc.
  • Durability: The effect of some antistatic agents may gradually weaken with time or changes in the use environment. It is necessary to choose varieties with better durability.
  • Safety: Plastic anti-static should comply with relevant safety standards and be harmless to the human body and the environment.
