Ionphase permanent anti-static additives are inherently dissipative polymers (IDPs) that can be added to plastics during compounds, extrusion or injection molding to help control static build up in plastics.

Permanent anti-static additives are also know as non-migrating additives as they bind to the polymer matrix and do not move or migrate through or out of the plastic. Permanent anti-stats are based on a co-continuous ion conductive polymer phase. Ions acting as charge carriers within the additive will dissipate the static by making the charges mobile. This can be measured as lowered resistivity of the material.
