Hostastat® FA 14

Antistatic agent for plastic materials

Edition Number :
7
Edition Date :
October 17, 2014
Hostastat FA 14 is an ethoxylated alkyl amine which provides highly effective internal antistatic effect to thermoplastic polymers.

Benefits

  • Hostastat FA 14 is an antistatic agent based on renewable fatty acids with rather balanced application properties
  • In combination with Hostastat FE 1 it shows a well balanced performance in terms of time to get the antistatic effect and durability of the effect

Applications

Hostastat FA 14 is a highly effective internal antistatic agent. It is added to equalize and reduce static charges on polymers surface preventing undesired or hazardous effects caused by dust attraction, spark discharge, ink misting.

Hostastat FA 14 offers high performance and long term efficiency for thermoplastic polymers, i.e. polyolefins or styrenics.

For applications where immediate antistatic effects are required it is recommended to combine Hostastat FA 14 with rapidly acting antistatic agents, .e.g. Hostastat FE 2.
