Anti-fog for PP cold fog applications

Einar® 618 will provide good anti-fog performance in PP film and is primarily suited for cold fog applications but will also have good properties in a hot fog use.

Einar® 618 works well in both cast and BOPP film and will be a fast acting anti-fog, producing clear and transparent film for an extended period of time.

The recommended loading level of Einar® 618 is 1.0 - 1.5% when incorporated in a random copolymer PP layer and loading levels for homopolymer PP film are 1.5 - 2.0%.

Anti-fog for PP hot fog applications

Einar® 422 is a new hot fog development and will be an excellent choice for any PP anti-fog application for packing of hot foods on display or microwaved ready meals. Performance is immediate and consistent throughout the period of storage at elevated temperatures.

The recommended loading level of Einar® 422 is 0.5 - 1.0% when incorporated in a random copolymer PP layer and loading levels for homopolymer PP film are 1.0 - 1.5%

  • Einar® 422
    DESCRIPTION

    Specifically developed for the demanding hot fog conditions in polypropylene, Einar® 422 ensures a clear view of the packaged product by lowering the surface tension which causes the condensed droplets on the polymer surface to spread into a thin transparent film.  

    Einar® 422 provides instant as well as prolonged anti-fog effect in various PP types. 

    KEY FEATURES AND BENEFITS
    • An additive blend made from vegetable oil
    • An internal anti-fog additive for masterbatches based on PP
    • High performance anti-fog for BOPP films
    • Helps to avoid fogging from hot packaged food
    • Keeps food wrap films and other types of packaging transparent
    • Available in pellet form
