What is the ENTIRA AS series?

ENTIRA is an anionic specialty resin developed based on the polymer technologies of Dow-Mitsui Polychemicals.

* ENTIRA is a trademark of the US-based Dow Chemical Company or its affiliates.

ENTIRA Features of the ENTIRA AS Series

ENTIRA can be added to a polyolefin to produce excellent antistatic performance.

  • As ENTIRA is a polymer type antistatic agent, it has excellent secondary contamination prevention properties for contents.
  • Antistatic effects do not deteriorate over time and are semipermanent.
  • As ENTIRA disperses well in polyolefins, film has a good outside appearance after blending.

ENTIRA has excellent high frequency sealing properties, making it suitable for sealing thick materials as a substitute for PVC.

ENTIRA has excellent workability and can be processed in regular molding equipment designed for polyolefins.

Secondary Contamination Prevention Performance

Secondary Contamination Prevention Performance

High frequency welder sealing properties

High frequency welder sealing properties
  • In the flexible sheet field, PP/EVA/PP and PE/EVA/PE three-layer polyolefin sheets utilizing the high frequency heating properties of EVA are used, but their high frequency weldability is inferior to PVC.
  • By adding ENTIRA AS Series to the EVA layer, high frequency welding properties can be dramatically improved.
  • In addition, adding ENTIRA AS Series to polyolefin can give it high frequency welding properties.

Usage detail

Packaging materials using ENTIRA AS Series attract less dust and dirt, and also have the effect of preventing adverse effects on contents due to static electricity. In addition, since it is suitable for sealing with high frequency induction heating, we suggest using it for the following products that utilize those properties.
