Permanent Antistats for Molded Plastics

A new line of pelletized additives is said to permanently decrease static build-up in molded polyolefins, HIPS, ABS, PC/ABS, PBT, acetal, and nylon.

A new line of pelletized additives is said to permanently decrease static build-up in molded polyolefins, HIPS, ABS, PC/ABS, PBT, acetal, and nylon. Available from Tomen America, N.Y.C., the Pelestat line forms a matrix of elongated conductive domains within the host resin. Dispersion is said to be more uniform than with conventional antistats, and static prevention reportedly does not diminish with surface cleaning of parts or the passage of time.
