Anti-stat protection in PP injection moulding applications

Einar® 201, Einar®207 and Einar® 306 are excellent general purpose GMS anti-static additives for a broad range of PP injection moulding applications and will ensure clean, dust free and attractive appearances of packaging, appliances and other household products. Recommended loading levels for homopolymer PP are 0.3 - 0.5% and for random copolymers is 0.1 - 0.3%.

Einar® additives will provide the necessary mould release and denesting properties when incorporated in both random copolymer and homopolymer PP at the recommended levels for good ant-istat performance.

Einar® 401 and Einar® 411 are suitable anti-static additives for demanding applications such as electronic packaging. They offer both short and long-term effect rivaling that of ethoxylated amine and amides while also providing mould release and density properties.

Why you need anti-static additives for your injection moulded PP

PP is a very versatile polymer used for many different purposes including medical and food packaging, appliances and a broad portfolio of everyday products. All of which require anti-static properties in some form.

A good anti-static additive will secure an attractive appearance of the products towards the consumer – dust-free products are obtainable by the use of efficient migratory anti-stats that are able to build an additive concentration on the polymer surface which interacts with water in the air to form a conductive layer. This will enable dissipation of static charges whereby dust and other fine particles will not be attracted.

A good anti-static additive is required to deliver good and reliable anti-static performance, but it is also expected to work well as a mould release to ease processing. In the final moulded product, denesting properties are often requested and that functionality is also provided by anti-stats that lubricate the polymer surface and allows easy separation of stacked parts.
