The active compound of Einar® 981 is a polyglycerol ester (PGE) blend of fatty acids derived from RSPO certified sustainable palm oil. As a non-toxic and food-contact approved anti-fouling additive, the product offers a drop-in regulatory-compliant solution to replace incumbent ethoxylated amines and can also be used as a more efficient alternative to sorbitan monooleates. This makes it an ideal process additive in the polymerisation of PP and PE materials for sensitive applications, including e.g. medical devices and baby food containers.
“Polyolefin producers are under growing pressure from converters and brand owners to abandon the use of ethoxylated amines in their polymerisation processes and switch to safer products without any regulatory concerns,” says Ulrik Aunskjaer, Global Business Director, Bio Specialty Additives at Palsgaard. “Einar® 981 is our answer to meet this challenge with a highly sustainable, renewable and food-grade anti-fouling process aid that demonstrates our expertise in customer and market-focused renewable polymer additives.”
Einar® 981 is produced in CO2-neutral facilities and will be commercially available worldwide.
