Anti-static agents and ageing modifiers for polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP) foam • Einar® 601: Excellent anti-stat for foamed PE with no adverse effects on foam stability • Einar® 207: Ageing modifier for high and consistent foam quality Application background Polyethylene and 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 needed. It is these characteristics, combined with their versatility and customization possibilities, that make them so useful in many applications. . Ageing modifiers are used to ensure the production of high quality foam and provide crucially important functionality to guarantee stable foam that will not collapse when products are conditioned to ensure release of excessive blowing agent. Efficient anti-stat protection is needed in many electronic packaging applications. It is vital that performance is good and that the packaging remains reliable even when humidity is low.
