Ionphase™ U5 permanent anti-static additive is used in compounding and injection molding of translucent, colored and filled Polypropylene. It has been designed with compatibility in mind, and is suitable for injection molding applications that require ATEX, EPA or dust prevention.
Ionphase™ U5 static dissipative, polymeric polymer additive is commonly known as a permanent anti-static additive. These additives are used to control static electricity in plastics. This works by forming an interpenetrated network within the host polymer reducing the resistivity of the blend.
Guidelines for Use:
We suggest adding the material as an additive during the extrusion process. Compounding into the host polymer is highly recommended before injection molding.
The required loading of Ionphase™ U5 additive depends on the host polymer, processing method and the targeted level of static dissipation.
