Polymers are characterized by low electrical conductivity values and perform as electrical insulators. As a result, they cannot dissipate charges developed by frictional contact, which can lead to processability and performance issues.

Common problems related to static charges mainly occur during handling, conveying, and dosing due to repulsion and attraction forces. Additionally, a charged polymeric surface attracts dust particles and can cause sparking during discharge.

Antistatic masterbatches provide fast action and long-term control over static charge build-up. The rate of action and life expectancy can be adjusted according to application requirements.
