Why use anti-static coating solutions?

Efficient anti-static properties are very important in many packaging applications and a wide range of polymers are used to cover different needs in each of these applications. Topically applied anti-static agents are the only efficient approach when migratory additives fail to provide the required performance. This is the case in applications where migration is hindered by high crystallinity of the polymer or its bonding to the additive.

PET and PS are typical examples of polymers where topical coatings are the most efficient way to achieve good and reliable anti-static performance. There are applications in both PE and PP, such as BOPP, where coatings will greatly benefit the performance. One example would be the use as an anti-static processing aid in assembling plastic materials and hindering dust attraction.

Anti-static coating additives for PET and BOPP

  • Einar® 1103
    DESCRIPTION

    Einar® 1103 is a plant-based, food-grade anti-static coating designed to be applied to the surface of polymer by spray or roll. It is formulated with 10% active content in water and is meant to be further diluted before application. This is followed by a subsequent step of drying or heating to remove the water, leaving behind an active layer of anti-static additive on the surface.

    KEY FEATURES AND BENEFITS
    • FDA and EU approved for food-contact applications
    • Highly effective replacement for anti-static sorbitan esters, amines and amides
    • Can be used for a large range of polymers including polyesters, polyolefins and polystyrenes.
    • Enables clean and dust-free packaging in production and final application
    • Prevents electrical discharge during production and handling of plastic packaging
    • Available in liquid form
    • Produced in CO2-neutral factories
