Application: HBS-A300 is tallow based oleyl bis(2-hydroxyethyl) amine. HBS-A300 is an
internal antistatic additive that can be used in various polymers such as PE, LDPE and PP. HBS-A300 gives sustained antistatic action and is especially effective in film applications also due to its relative fast migration. HBS-A300 is a paste at ambient temperature. When heated at 40-50℃ the product can be dosed as a liquid 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 HBS-A300 in the resin while HBS-A300 acts as dispersion aid to the pigment color concentrate.
After being mixed into the polymer HBS-A300 continuously migrates to the surface of the finished product where it provides excellent antistatic performance. HBS-A300 is especially suitable for all PE film applications.
Some indication for the level applied in various polymers is given below:
Polymer Addition level (%)
LDPE 0.1- 0.3
Safety and health: HBS-A300 is non-toxic, approved for application in food indirect contact packaging materials.
