This study aims to produce a long-term antistatic acrylic-based film by incorporating ionic liquid (IL), 1-ethyl-2,3-dimethylimidazolium ethyl sulphate (EIL) into acrylic resin. After loading, characterisations of samples were conducted by mechanically, thermally and morphologically. In order to determine antistatic properties, surface resistivity of samples was measured by using at different time intervals. The results indicated that IL loaded polymers showed a good antistatic property for a long time. The effect of incorporation on tensile strength, tensile modulus, flexural strength and flexural modulus of polymer were also obtained. After loading process, tensile strength, tensile modulus, flexural strength and flexural modulus values decreased considerably. The decrement in tensile strength of polymer is much less than that in flexural strength. The effect of EIL incorporation into acrylic resin on thermal conductivity and surface wettability was also investigated. From scanning electron microscopy images, EIL particles in nano-size range were observed in polymer structure.
