OnCap™ Antistatic Additives
In everyday life, static electricity can be a nuisance. But in the world of product manufacturing, it can be a major disruption. As polymer material moves through shear-inducing production equipment, positive or negative static charges can build up on the surface. This static buildup can then cause the resulting parts, film or sheet to cling to one another or stick to the mold or tool. And, these static charges can remain in the parts well after production. This can cause them to attract and collect oppositely charged dust – on an automotive dashboard, for example – or can create unwanted charges on the surface of electrical equipment.
OnCap™ Antistatic Additives control the buildup of static charges in thermoplastic parts, enabling them to dissipate by absorbing and ionizing moisture from the air, which forms a conductive path for surface static charges.
