The permanent antistat from Ciba is a buy and resell item in pellet form and very expensive and hygroscopic. Since putting this on the market they have had little suppor for the product. The levels needed are high and the cost is high but as a polymer it is basically alloyed with the polyolefin unlike GMS type antistats which in my opinion are the bread and butter of antistats. Remember regardless of the term permanence the key to all antistats is RH. If you are at 50% RH even the cheapest and least effective product works but the key is RH at 10-25%.
