Abstract : The patent describes the use of poly (metal phosphinates) as electrostatic discharge agents on polyethylene and other polymeric surface materials. More specifically, zirconium dihydroxy dibutylphosphinate dioctylphosphinate and chromium aquo hydroxy dibutylphosphinate and/or chromium aquo hydroxy methylphenylphosphinate are deposited from a solvent such as chloroform to provide an antistatic coating on the polymeric material.
