BX ATA 400 is vegetable-based saturated-alkylbis(2-hydroxyethyl)amine of high purity and low color. It is an internal antistatic additive that can be used in various polymers such as PE, LDPE, PP, SAN, ABS and HIPS. It gives sustained antistatic action and is especially effective in film applications due to its relatively fast migration because of its relatively short chain. BX ATA 400 is a liquid at ambient temperatures and can be dosed 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 BX ATA 400 in the resin while it acts as a dispersion aid to the pigment color concentrate.
BX ATA 400 is non-toxic and approved for application in food indirect contact packaging materials.
