Einar® coating additives

With fine-powdered additives Einar® 501 and Einar® 511 Palsgaard offers the standard GMS and GTS commonly used in the industry for processing control. This enables manufacturers to create their own tailored blends to match their specific production set-ups.

Einar® anti-static EPS coating additives

Einar® 501 is an efficient vegetable-based GMS anti-stat that will help improve flow properties of EPS beads during storage, transportation and through the pre-expansion step as well as during screening and moulding by reduction of agglomerates and attraction to processing equipment.

Einar® 501 is a fine powder with excellent coating properties and the recommended use level is 0.1 - 0.6% depending on EPS bead size. Smaller beads require higher concentrations due to a higher specific surface area.

Einar® EPS cooling time enhancers

Einar® 511 is a plant-based GTS cooling time enhancer which will help reduce cycle times by facilitating a faster exchange of foaming agent and air in the moulding process.

Einar® 511 is a very fine powder and has high coating efficiency and should be used at loading levels of 0.1 - 0.4% to obtain the best performance on cooling time.

Einar® coating additive blends

Blends offer a very convenient way to apply EPS coatings. It is an all-in-one solution where there is no need to handle several different individual products. The complete coating formulation is a ready-to-use pre-blended formulation offering easy dosing and accuracy, better and faster handling and options for additive inventory optimization.

EPS anti-stat and cooling time enhancer blends

As blends of cooling time enhancers and anti-static additives Einar® 531 and Einar® 533 offer a very convenient way to apply EPS coatings. They offer all-in-one solutions where there is no need to handle several different individual products.

The complete coating formulation is a ready-to-use pre-blended formulation offering easy dosing and accuracy, better and faster handling and options for additive inventory optimization.

EPS full blends of GMS/GTS/Zinc Stearate

Einar® 543 and Einar® 544 are the perfect solution for EPS producers looking to optimise their production processes and add a more sustainable profile to their products in one go. These all-in-one solutions complete with zinc stearate eliminate the need to handle several different individual products.

The complete coating formulations are ready-to-use pre-blended formulations offering easy dosing and accuracy, better and faster handling and options for additive inventory optimization.

Einar® 543 and Einar® 544 are blends with GMS, GTS and varying zinc stearate content. It is often a matter of the producers specific processing and handling whether more lubrication in the form of a higher zinc stearate content is needed.
