Static Elimination and Plastics

When you’re working with plastics, there are a range of challenges that static can pose, starting with human safety. Plastic generates large amounts of static and can be potentially hazardous to employees, posing shock risks when not properly managed. Electrostatic discharge can also make materials unwieldy and difficult to handle, for both employees and customers. Another important concern is micro contamination, which is especially risky with medical devices, causing costly damage to your products, your customers’ products, and your bottom line. Transforming Technologies provides custom solutions to help manage static and contamination to ensure your process runs smoothly. Most solutions utilize corona ionization due to the nature of the plastics environment and the speeds found in many of the spools, which are not ideal for alpha solutions.
