ANTIBLOCK      Additive used to give surface of film a rougher texture at a microscopic level. Without additives, film has tacky texture similar to cling wrap. Prevents film from sticking together, or "blocking".
ANTISTAT   Plastic has a natural tendency to attract static electricity. Additives put in to dissipate static are referred to as antistats. There are many standardized tests, such as MIL B – 81705C to measure the effectiveness of antistatic agents.  CLICK HERE to learn more about our anti-stat film.
