A composition for reducing static charge build up on wide platen belts in recirculating document handlers is disclosed. Paper jams due to misregistration are commonly caused by static charge build up on wide platen belts or platen glass. Typically, hardware such as conductive brushes, support rollers and wires, are used to drain static charge build up in the document handler to ground.
