Applications

Hostastat FE 20 is an efficient antistatic agent for polar polymers, especially semi-rigid and flexible PVC as well as styrenics. It is added to equalize and reduce static charges on polymers surfaces. Hostastat FE 20 does not cause hazing at usual addition levels of 0,5 to 2 %.

During processing of PVC, Hostastat FE 20 acts as an internal lubricant and processing aid.
