Antistatic grades that offer higher conductivity and impart a very low surface resistance

30-Sep-09
Arkema has added two antistatic grades of Pebax resin - Pebax MH2030 and MV2080, which offer even higher conductivity and impart a very low surface resistance into the range of 106 Ohms. Applications such as the packaging of sensitive electronics or industrial packaging for flammable or explosive materials require plastics with high static dissipative performance as well and good mechanical and optical properties. These improved antistatic properties offer higher performance by giving better static dissipative properties to end products, and reduced additive loadings for the same level of antistatic performance while preserving the properties of the host matrix. The new grades continue to keep all the key properties expected of existing antistatic Pebax grades including immediacy, permanence and stability over a large window of relative humidity. Grades MH2030 and MV2080 can be chosen depending on the host matrix and the end application. Pebax MV2080 is particularly suited to applications requiring high cleanliness and very low out gassing. All antistatic Pebax grades can be added directly by dry-blend for injection or extrusion in a wide range of polymers (e.g., PA, PP, PE, ABS, PC/ABS, PET, PS, TPU, PMMA, or PVC).
