One Trick to Prevent Static Electricity!

Due to polypropylene being a typical non-polar polymer material, it has extremely poor water absorption. After being subjected to friction, the charge of the non-woven fabric is difficult to dissipate, making it highly static.

Wearing nylon or woolen clothing in dry weather can cause sparks and static electricity. This is generally harmless to the human body, but the sparks generated by static electricity can cause damage to certain precision medical equipment or cause flammable materials to explode. For example, on the operating table, sparks generated by static electricity from protective clothing can cause explosions of anesthetics, resulting in significant hazards.


Why do medical protective clothing need to add anti-static masterbatch?

With the outbreak of the epidemic, the demand for medical protective clothing has continued to rise. Since medical protective clothing is mainly used to isolate bacteria, viruses, and blood infections, a large number of medical protective clothing on the market are made of SS spunbonded meltblown non-woven fabric and SMS composite non-woven fabric. The national standard GB19082-2009 for medical protective clothing requires that the charge of medical protective clothing should not exceed 0.6μC/piece, and the static electricity decay time of medical protective clothing should not exceed 0.5s. Therefore, in order to eliminate the charge generated on the surface of the non-woven fabric, anti-static masterbatch needs to be added.


Honye's anti-static masterbatch

Honye has designed antistatic masterbatch specifically for non-woven fabrics used in medical materials. It can improve the antistatic effect of products, timely dissipate accumulated static electricity, reduce the irritation of static electricity on the fabric and its impact on precision equipment. By adding just 1%, it can effectively improve the phenomenon of fly yarn during processing. Adding 3% can achieve a surface resistivity of 10 to the power of 8 to 9.

In addition to anti-static masterbatches for non-woven fabrics, we also provide antistatic masterbatches for films and conductive carbon black masterbatches for the XPE foam industry. If you need samples or testing reports, please contact our sales representative!



Tips for Use

The antistatic treatment effect can be quantitatively determined by a series of methods. Regardless of the method used, we recommend pre-treating the tested samples by placing them under the same temperature and humidity conditions for at least 24 hours prior to testing. The antistatic effect is closely related to the environmental humidity, and dry winter weather can cause a decrease in antistatic effect.
