Coperion has implemented a complete system for IonPhasE Oy for the manufacture of inherently dissipative polymers (IDP). The scope of supply included the entire system – from raw material handling through conveying, feeding and processing the dissipative polymers up to handling the finished products. Inherently dissipative polymers are suitable for a variety of applications where antistatic plastic products are of considerable significance.
Inherently dissipative polymers are a success factor for antistatic applications
The Finnish technology company IonPhasE Oy is a leading manufacturer of static dissipative polymer additives, commonly known as permanent anti-static additives. These serve to control static electricity in plastics. They are used in a variety of industries – wherever anti-static properties are needed, for example in the electrical, chemical and automotive industries. They are also incorporated in consumer goods that need to be protected from electrostatic attraction, such as air-conditioning units, vacuum cleaners, switches and housings.
