Armostat 1800 is a vegetable based saturated alkyl(C16-C18)bis(2-hydroxyethyl)amine. Armostat 1800 is an internal antistatic additive that
can be used in various polymers such as PE, LLDPE, PP, SAN and ABS.
Armostat 1800 gives sustained antistatic action and has due to its saturated alkyl chain excellent thermal stability. This makes Armostat 1800 especially suitable for those applications needing higher processing temperatures.
Armostat 1800 is a solid at ambient temperatures. When heated at 60-
65oC Armostat 1800 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 Armostat 1800 in the resin while Armostat 1800 acts as a dispersion aid to the pigment color concentrate.
After being mixed into the polymer Armostat 1800 continuously migrates to
the surface of the finished product where it provides excellent antistatic performance. Armostat 1800 is especially well suitable for those applications needing high processing temperatures.
