Protecting your product from static electricity

Static electricity is a significant issue in the flexible packaging industry. Working with Polyolefin films can lead to electric shocks and sometimes even initiate a fire or explosion. Static electricity can also result in dust attraction and processing/handling difficulties.

The Antistatic masterbatches developed by Polyfil effectively dissipate electrons even in low relative humidity conditions. They decrease the level of dust accumulation through static charge, prevent sudden ignitions through discharge sparks and decrease the surface resistance.

Polyfil’s state-of-the-art laboratory also offers static decay and surface resistivity testing services to help our client dial in their antistatic requirements.
