BX ATA 1800 is vegetable-based saturated alkyl(C16~C18) bis(2-hydroxyethyl) amine. It is an internal antistatic additive that can be used in various polymers such as PE, LLDPE, PP, SAN and ABS. it gives sustained antistatic action and shows excellent thermal stability due to its saturated alkyl chain. This makes it especially suitable for those applications needing higher processing temperatures.
it is solid at ambient temperatures. When heated at 60-65℃, the product can be dosed as a liquid directly into the polymer by using a single or twin-screw extruder. Pigment or color concentrates should be mixed with the antistatic agent prior to extruding. Premixing ensures uniform distribution of it in the resin while it acts as a dispersion aid to the pigment color concentrate. After being mixed into the polymer it continuously migrates to the surface of the finished product where it provides excellent antistatic performance. it is especially well-suitable for those applications needing high processing temperatures.
BX ATA 1800 is non-toxic, and approved for application in food indirect contact packaging materials.
