All you need to know about Anti- Static Acrylic AC300
AC-300 also known as the anti-static acrylic sheet, is a product that has been designed to control static electricity in many applications and range of end uses. Some of the applications where AC-300 is used includes windows, doors, machine covers, fabricated desiccators and cabinets. This unique technology prevents charge generation on the sheet surfaces, hence controlling particulate attraction and electrostatic discharge (ESD) events. Acrylic is known to offer excellent design versatility since it fabricates easily and is light in weight.
As the material is easily fabricated into flat surface, AC-300 cannot be used for heat formed bent configurations since the surface is not designed for heat bending.

Why Anti-static additives are important?
As most plastics are electrical insulators which means that the electric charges do not flow freely. The polymers, therefore have a strong tendency to accumulate electrostatic charges. This charge can then stay on the surface of the plastic until it discharges when the material comes into contact with the person or microcircuit.
