: (Hydrogenated tallow)-bis(2-hydroxyethyl)amine
CAS Number: 90367-28-5
Physical form: solid
Long-lasting, animal-based internal antistatic agent for BOPP and PP applications.
Armostat® 600 is a saturated alkyl bis (2-hydroxyethyl) amine based on tallow. Armostat® 600 is an internal antistatic additive that can be used in a variety of polymers such as PE, LLDPE, PP, SAN and ABS. Armostat® 600 has a long-lasting antistatic effect and exhibits excellent thermal stability due to its saturated alkyl chain. This makes Armostat® 600 particularly suitable for applications requiring higher processing temperatures. Armostat® 600 is solid at ambient temperature. When heated at 50-55°C, the product can be added directly to the polymer as a liquid using a single or twin screw extruder. Pigments or masterbatches should be mixed with the antistatic agent prior to extrusion. Pre-mixing ensures uniform distribution of Armostat® 600 in the resin and Armostat® 600 can be used as a dispersing aid for pigment pastes.
