Antistatic Masterbatches - These are designed to prevent a buildup of static electricity in plastics. Polymers by nature have very good insulating properties but these very properties may lead to a number of handling and other problem. Static charge may result in clinging of sheet and films, sticking of stacked polystyrene cups, attract dust and dirt. Also, a sudden discharge can create sparks that may damage electronic components and can be an explosion hazard.
