Permanent Antistatic Solutions

Specific Pebax® Polymer Grades offer permanent, non-fugitive antistatic properties in a wide array of host resins.

Immediate & Permanent Antistatic Properties

Certain Pebax® polymer grades offer a spectrum of antistatic and static-dissipative properties. 

 

Unlike many other antistatic technologies, Pebax® antistatic polymers are permanent and non-migratory. They form an immediate, continuous non-fugitive 3D network within the host polymer structure. The result is an antistatic blend that may be colored (unlike Carbon black solutions) and is largely independent of relative ambient humidity conditions.

Careful Control of Block Copolymer Chemistry...

Pebax® Antistatic Additives Graphic

For many years, Arkema has been famous for their Polyether Block Amide (PEBA) chemistry. By carefully controlling the nature of the polyether blocks (that give flexibility and tailored chemical channeling abilities) and the polyamide blocks (that give toughness and chemical resistance), Arkema offers a wide range of polymers with specific and tailored antistatic properties.

 

Not all Pebax® grades are antistatic in nature; only those grades whose polyether blocks are specifically chosen for their inherent ability to form continuous molecular charge diffusion channels through the matrix.

...At the Right Concentration

The surface resistance of plastics as a function of the percent of Pebax® antistaic additive.

Even at low concentrations of Pebax® antistatic additives in the host resin, a fairly high level of static dissipation is observed. This level increases as more additive is incorporated (compounded) until a steady-state saturation is achieved. At this critical concentration, a full and complete continuous static-dissipating molecular network has been achieved.
