Why you need anti-static additives for your PP foams

Polypropylene foams are very popular and widely used packaging materials. They are resilient, return to form after compression and provide effective cushioning and security where it is needed. It is these characteristics, combined with their versatility and customization possibilities, that make them so useful in many applications.

Many PP foam applications require anti-static properties. This is especially the case for packaging of sensitive electronics, for which anti-static properties are crucial to protect them from electric charges. Here optimised and highly effective anti-static additives are required.

Anti-static additives for polypropylene (PP) foams

  • Einar® 401
    DESCRIPTION

    Einar® 401 is an optimised blend of distilled glycerol esters with selected fatty acids. This gives both a short and long term anti-static effect rivaling that of conventional ethoxylated amide and amines. Being inherently food-grade and highly efficient in low humidity conditions makes it the perfect candidate for PP foams in food packaging and electronics.

    KEY FEATURES AND BENEFITS
    • Highly effective anti-static performance in PP foams
    • Suitable for the packaging of sensitive electronic goods
    • Synergistic anti-static effects with additional additives
    • Food-grade replacement of anti-static chemicals of concern (amines and amides)
    • Safe and ecotoxicologically friendly production and handling of PE and PP foams
    • Ideal for food-contact applications
