PELECTRON – Improved Film Heatsealing

By: | Tags: | Comments: 0

Did You Know: Antistats can affect the heatsealing of blown film, requiring an increase in heatsealing temperature or pressure or both. The good news is PELECTRON LMP-FS offers dramatically improved heatsealing characteristics. This allows the production of film packaging which is BOTH permamnently static dissippative AND ALSO easy to heat seal! Use the Contact Us link for information.

PELESTAT Application Spotlight: Bulk Bags

By: | Tags: | Comments: 0

Did You Know: PELESTAT has been used in “Bulk Bags” for many years. Also known as Flexible Intermediate Bulk Containers (FIBC), these bags are used to package large quantities (up to 2,000 lbs) of powdered ingredients for the chemical, food and pharmaceutical industries. Normally, transfer of dry powders can cause dangerous static charge buildup, leading to explosions. However, PELECTRON, used in Type “D” Antistatic FIBC bags, prevents this by dissipating static electric charges as they are generated without the need for a ground wire. Surface resistivity values down to 10E9 […]

PELECTRON LIP

By: | Tags: | Comments: 0

Sanyo Chemical Industries continues to expand the performance envelope of permanent anti-static additives.  SANAM has recently introduced trial grade PELECTRON LIP, a permanent polymeric anti-static additive which can be used to produce static-dissipative, transparent acrylic (PMMA) compounds with Surface Resistivity values in the 10E9 – 10E12 ohm/sq range.   Unique features of PELECTRON LIP include its ultra-light color, its low ionic content and its low outgassing.  Clear compounds are achievable because PELECTRON LIP matches the refractive index of PMMA.  Like all PELESTAT and PELECTRON anti-static products, PELECTRON PVL will not […]
