Armostat - Antistatic Additives

These products are internal antistatic additives that offer a solution to problems related to the accumulation of electric charges on plastic materials, including spark formulation during processing and dust attraction during storage.

Armostats increase the dissipation of electric charge without seriously altering the mechanical or optical properties of the material.

Once incorporated into the polymer, they migrate to the surface of the finished article, giving the required antistatic effect through interaction with environmental humidity.

High Concentrate Antistatic Additives

Dosing paste or liquid antistats can be a problem so Armostat is also available in high concentrate form.

Previously marketed under the Nourymix brand, these easy to use grades reduce cleaning time of dosing systems and minimise waste while still giving all the advantages of the antistatic additive.
