Hostastat® FE 2

Antistatic agent for plastic materials

Edition Number :
6
Edition Date :
January 01, 2014
Hostastat FE 2 is a fatty acid ester which provides highly effective internal antistatic properties to thermoplastic polymers.

Benefits

  • Hostastat FE 2 is an antistatic agent based on renewable fatty acids.
  • The antistatic effect is longer lasting compared to Hostastat FE 1 but time to build up the effect is a bit longer.
  • In combination with Hostastat FA 14 it shows a well balanced performance in terms of time to get the antistatic effect and durability of the effect.

Applications

Hostastat FE 2 is a highly effective internal antistatic agent for polyolefins especially polypropylene that rapidly develops its antistatic effect.
It is added to equalize and reduce static charges on polymers surfaces preventing undesired or hazardous effects caused by dust attraction, spark discharge, ink misting.
Hostastat FE 2 can be combined with long lasting ethoxylated amines (e.g. Hostastat FA 14 or Hostastat FA 68) in order to combine its rapidly generated effect with a long term performance of an amine.
During processing of filled or reinforced PP, Hostastat FE 2 acts as a flow promoter.
