Tivar Cleanstat White product flyer - .PDF file.

Quadrant Engineering Plastic Products (EPP) has launched an FDA-approved and Atex-tested thermoplastic offering permanent antistatic performance for pharmaceutical and food applications.

Tivar Cleanstat White — an ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene (UHMW-PE) — is designed to address the increasing hygiene and safety demands of the pharmaceutical and drugs processing industry, including conformity to Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) handling requirements and compliance with Atex Directive 94/9/EC.

The product has been developed to benefit applications including guiders for pill filling, drug pressing equipment, pistons and valves for powder dosing and labelling and printing equipment. For the food processing and packaging sector, it is suitable for linings in sugar and flour processing, guiders for pudding weighing and filling and conveyor parts.

Key benefits

  • Tivar Cleanstat White is claimed to combine good electrostatic dissipation (ESd), excellent wear resistance and food contact compliancy.
  • The thermoplastic is claimed to be the only white product on the market to permanently prevent the build-up of charge or static load caused by power handling and the friction of plastic surfaces over a period of more than two years.
  • It overcomes the partially static dissipative properties of antistatic agents, traditionally added to plastic machine parts, which fail over time through repeat use, handling and cleaning.
  • In tests according to Atex Directive 94/9/EC for explosion groups I and II, the plastic sample of Tivar Cleanstat White had a surface resistance of up to 429mohms — significantly below the limit of 1gohm.
  • The thermoplastic avoids the potential for explosion and contamination, which leads to increased safety and lower costs in maintenance and production.
  • Being light in colour, Tivar Cleanstat White avoids visible contamination with debris particles that can discolour pills and lozenges over time; the material can be tailor made to additional light colours without losing its ESd or food contact compliancy.
  • Tivar Cleanstat White offers good machineability with adequate tooling, as well as the advantage of excellent wear resistance similar to or above that of Tivar 1000.

Quadrant Engineering Plastic Products

Quadrant Engineering Plastic Products (QEPP) is the world’s leading manufacturer of semi-finished products made from general engineering and high-performance plastics. Quadrant also designs, develops and produces finished parts and solutions for a broad variety of applications in many different industries globally. Its product range extends from polyamide (PA), polyacetal (POM) and ultra high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMW-PE) to high-performance materials such as fluoroplastics and polybenzimidazole (PBI), which features temperature resistance to over 425C (800F) while maintaining total dimensional stability. The semi-finished products are machined or thermoformed and used in a variety of industries ranging from electronics through packaging machinery to chemical processing for applications where properties such as non-stick characteristics, abrasion resistance, dimensional stability, chemical and acid resistance or purity are extremely important.

Quadrant’s global teams of product development and applications engineers provide their customers with comprehensive advisory services. The best individual solution is sought for every customer requirement – from the choice of suitable material to optimum design of the finished product and machining of the most sophisticated materialsin state-of-the-art Technology Centres. Quadrant maintains a marketing and sales organization which is capable of pursuing new developments rapidly and efficiently worldwide. Quadrant focuses on growing markets, though many end users operate worldwide and have global requirements for materials and applications consulting.
