Einar® for PE anti-stat applications 

Einar® anti-static additives offer excellent performance in a very broad range of PE applications. In most LDPE and LLDPE film it will provide a good and sufficient performance at low loading levels. In HDPE, a highly crystalline material where anti-stat migration is low, anti-stat concentrations need to be higher. 

In coextruded or laminated packaging films, the anti-stat is often added to a very thin section of the entire film and therefore, the anti-stat must be a very reliable and efficient performer. Palsgaard’s anti-static additives will deliver the performance you need and has proven to deliver excellent performance when used in the thinner film sections of a sealing layer such as metallocene LLDPE. 

Rivaling the performance of current industry standard such as ethoxylated amine and amides, our anti-static additives are efficient and safe alternatives. Inherently food grade and 100% plant based, they eliminate any concerns of food safety.  

Anti-static additives for PE films

PE film is commonly used in a very broad range of packaging applications and the need for efficient anti-stats is crucial in the packaging of powdered products. It is required that bags can be properly heat sealed and there should be no contamination from packaged products in the heat seal area. An efficient anti-stat protection that will work well, also under low humidity conditions, ensures smooth operation with packaging of powdered products on high speed packaging lines. 

In packaging of electronic components, it is a particular requirement that the anti-stat works well under very low humidity conditions. It must also be guaranteed that the anti-stat chemistry has no detrimental effects on packaged products such as stress cracking of polycarbonate when the packaging material is in direct contact with polycarbonate components.
