It can be seen that it will form a layer of continuous hydrophilic film on the scale layer after coating antistatic agent, making the scale lines blurred and the whole body smooth, and only the local scales are not completely covered.
It may also be used as an antistatic agent for products where it is important to control static electricity, such as vehicle gas caps and fuel pipes.
The special resin bond system and antistatic agent help resist loading and increase belt life.
Rendering a liquid 'conductive' with a conductivity of >10,000 pS/m by the use of an antistatic agent reduces electrostatic hazards in a variety of applications.
Plenty of studies have reported that existing methods to avoid static electricity in polymers commonly include two ways: one is adding antistatic agent and mixing conductive fillers such as carbon black [4], graphite [5], carbon nanotubes [6], as well as inorganic salt [7]; the other one is the surface modification of materials such as surface radiation and spreading conductive coating [8], Both of them are often adopted to reduce the surface resistivity of PUs.
Components are FDA-approved for food-contact applications and can be used as a release agent inherent in its functions as an antistatic agent. Michel XO-24 improves mold release and de-staticizes without significantly reducing surface resistance of molded or cast resin.
The role of an antistatic agent is to make the material conductive.
