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 […]

PELESTAT & PELECTRON – Unaffected by Changes in Relative Humidity

By: | Tags: | Comments: 0

Did You Know:   PELESTAT and PELECTRON permanent anti-static additives permit the achievement of Surface Resistivity values in the 10E9 – 10E12 ohm/sq range regardless of the level of relative humidity in the service environment. Ordinary anti-static additives work by attracting moisture from the ambient atmosphere to form a microscopic layer of water on the surface of the plastic component.  This mechanism is dependent upon and affected by the level of relative humidity. This is why ordinary anti-static additives do not function well in dry environments. However, PELESTAT and PELECTRON […]
