HOSTASTAT HS 1
CHEMICAL NAME: Alkanesulphonate sodium salt
Hostastat HS 1 pills is an alkane sulfonate which provides highly effective antistatic properties to thermoplastic polymers.
Hostastat HS 1 pills is an antistatic agent mainly used in engineering plastics and PVC.
HOSTASTAT HS 1 exhibits an outstanding efficiency and provides long term antistatic effect.
Hostastat HS 1 pills is incorporated into plastics to reduce the negative effects of electrostatic charge accumulation such as dust attraction, static discharge and splashing of printing inks.
During the processing of thermoplastics, Hostastat HS 1 pills acts as a flow promoting lubricant and release agent.
Hostastat HS 1 pills is preferably used as an internal antistatic agent for polar plastics, such as PVC and styrenics.
Where incorporation into the polymer is not possible, it can be applied externally to the surface of the finished article by spraying or dipping.
Therefore it is normally used in the form of a 1 % aqueous solution in conjunction with 0,1 % of a suitable surface-acting alcohol, such as Mowiol 10 – 74.
Hostastat HS 1 pills by Clariant is a sodium alkane sulfonate grade.
HOSTASTAT HS 1 acts as an internal antistatic agent, flow promoting lubricant and release agent.
HOSTASTAT HS 1 exhibits an outstanding efficiency and reduces the negative effects of electrostatic charge accumulation such as dust attraction, static discharge and splashing.
Hostastat HS 1 pills shows compatibility with thermoplastics and polar plastics like PVC and styrenics.
HOSTASTAT HS 1 has a minimum shelf life of 2 years.
HOSTASTAT HS 1 complies with Regulation (EU) No 10/2011, CONEG, EN 71-3, FDA 21 CFR § 178.2010, Directive 2002/95/EC (RoHS), Directive 2000/53/EC and Directive 94/62/EC.
Hostastat HS 1 is incorporated into plastics as an internal antistatic agent or applied as an external antistat to avoid the negative effects of electro-static charges (e.g. attraction of dust, static discharge, splashing of printing inks).
Hostastat HS 1, a sodium alkane sulfonate, is supplied as
> Hostastat HS 1 FF (free flowing), pale yellow fine grain
> Hostastat HS 1 Pills, yellowish granules
> Hostastat HS 1 Pills Zn, yellowish granules coated with Zn-stearate as an anti tacking agent to prevent sticking of the granules
Hostastat HS 1 FF by Clariant is a sodium alkane sulfonate grade.
Hostastat HS 1 FF acts as an internal antistatic & release agent and flow promoting lubricant.
Hostastat HS 1 FF possesses an outstanding efficiency.
Hostastat HS 1 FF reduces the negative effects of electrostatic charge accumulation such as dust attraction, static discharge and splashing.
Hostastat HS 1 FF shows compatibility with thermoplastics and polar plastics like PVC and styrenics.
Hostastat HS 1 FF has a minimum shelf life of 2 years.
Due to the manufacturing process Hostastat HS 1 is free from chloride ions.
Hostastat HS 1 does therefore not contain sodium chloride which has negative properties by causing burned spots in polymer articles.
Hostastat HS 1 as external antistatic agent
Hostastat HS 1 is preferably used as an internal antistatic agent for polar plastics.
Where incorporation into the polymer is not possible it can also be applied to the surface of the finished article (by spraying or dipping) in form of a 1 % aqueous solution of Hostastat HS 1 pills (which are dissolved to form a clear solution).
In order to assure a homogeneous distribution of Hostastat HS 1 on the surface of the finished article, we recommend the additional use of 0.1 % of a flow control agent based on polyvinyl alcohol.
Hostastat HS 1 pills has a good solubility in water.
Melting Point: ca. 220 °C (396 °F)
Alkane sulfonate: ≥ 90 %
Sodium sulfonate: ca. 5 %
