Electrostatic charges are commonly generated by friction contact between two materials with different susceptibilities to electron loss.

Most plastics have high surface resistivity, ranging from 10(14) – 10(18) Ohm.

Relative humidity has a major influence on the static electric build up. 

Static electricity can cause electrical discharge, which could destroy a polymer film, give electrical shocks to handlers, start a fire or cause an explosion. Static electricity can cause dust pick up (which ruins clarity), processing and handling problems. 

CONSTAB‘s range of antistatic-masterbatches is designed to overcome the above mentioned problems.
