Armostat 410 LM is a vegetable based saturated-alkylbis(2-hydroxyethyl)
amine of high purity and low color. Armostat 410 LM is an internal antistatic additive that can be used in various polymers such as PE, LDPE, PP, SAN, ABS and HIPS. Armostat 410 LM gives sustained antistatic action and is especially effective in film applications due to its relative fast
migration because of its relative short alkyl chain.
Armostat 410 LM is a liquid at ambient temperatures and can be dosed 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 410 LM in the resin while Armostat 410 LM acts as a dispersion aid to the pigment color concentrate. After being mixed into the polymer Armostat 410 LM continuously migrates to the surface of the finished product where it provides excellent antistatic performance. Due to its relative low molecular weight, Armostat 410 LM is a relatively fast acting antistat. The saturated alkyl chain gives Armostat a good thermal stability, which makes it especially well suitable for application needing higher processing
temperatures. The low color makes Armostat 410 LM specially suited for
more demanding applications.
