Deuteron® LE 292 is a conductivity additive formulated from a branched quaternary ammonium compound. It serves as an anti-static agent, enabling the adjustment of surface and volume resistivity within different systems. Its function primarily relies on surface migration and the ionic nature of the cations to regulate resistivity levels.

Product Highlights
  • Deuteron®® LE 292 is a conductivity additive based on a branched quaternary ammonium compound. The use of these anti-static additives allows the adjustment of the surface and volume resistivity in various systems. This effect is mainly based on surface migration and the ionic character of the cations.
  • The product is miscible in polar solvents or water. Other solvents or mixtures commonly used in coatings have to be checked.
  • The product is  biodegradable according to OECD. Compared to other quaternary ammonium compounds, these products are not hazardous substances.

Application and Dosage Information
  • Deuteron®’s antistatic additives are able to lower resistivity values of surface and volume resistivity. The effect of quaternary ammonium compounds is highly influenced by the type of system (resins, additives, pigments, etc.) and by the chosen measurement conditions. The suitability and effectiveness must be checked in each individual case.

Fields of application include:

  • Electrostatic adjustment of spray paints
  • PU systems (foam, shoe soles and casting resins)
  • UV and EB curable systems
  • PVC
  • Floor coatings
  • Synergistic wetting agent for carbon blacks, graphite and carbon fibers

Dosage

  • Typical addition level: 0.2 % - 5 %.
  • The exact quantities to be used depend on the system and must be determined individually for the intended application.

Processing

Deuteron®® LE 292 can be added to the system at any time during the production process or as post addition additives. They can be used to prepare an intermediate by diluting in suitable polar solvents or water. As phase separation can occur, the products must be stirred well before use.
