During the hammermill defibration of fluff pulp, there is a potential for frictional static built-up. Conveying of pulp in airlaid operations can also lead to static. Therefore, addition of antistatic agents to the pulp may be necessary.
Antistats must be substantive to the fiber and very efficient at low concentrations to offset the added chemical and processing expenses.
All of our antistatic agents are based on quaternary ammonium compounds. Many of these ammonium compounds are also highly alkoxylated which contributes to their overall antistatic efficiency and easy handling.
