...for a More Responsible Choice
All these functional benefits are provided at much lower concentrations than required when using conventional fossil-based amine or amide additives. As polyglycerol esters or glycerol mono-stearates, Einar® polymer additives are made exclusively with fatty acids sourced from vegetable oils, including certified segregated palm oil. All are FDA and EU approved for food-contact applications, and produced in certified CO2-neutral factories. This gives them a perfect fit in innovative new sustainable packaging materials and makes them an excellent replacement in existing packaging formulations, facilitating the switch from fossil to more responsible bio-based resources.
Typical applications include polyolefin (PP, PE) film, injection moulding and foam materials. In other areas, Einar® plant-based additives are used as ageing modifiers in PP and PE foams, slip agents in PET, PLA and other polyesters, coating powders for EPS, mould release agents, and pigment dispersants in colour masterbatches.
Tapping the Full Potential
Customers who wish to evaluate the functional and performance benefits of Einar® vs. common synthetic additives are supported by our large-scale Polymer Application Centre in Denmark. The Centre is fully equipped for testing new plant-based additive, masterbatch and plastics solutions from detailed material analyses to processing trials.
