The glass interleavants of the KSL esplas series are used to prevent the glass panes from sticking together during storage and transport of float glass through adhesion and thus enable stacking and destacking of the panes. Moreover, glass corrosion, which might lead to irreparable glass damage, is hindered effectively.
A minimal use of powder is possible with esplas due to the unique structure of the particles. The powders which are made from recycled PMMA (polymethyl methacrylate) or PE (polyethylene) are processed to get an irregular particle shape. These properties enable smooth sliding when the glass panes are separated and minimize simultaneously the risk of slipping due to dust on the floor, which is present by using polymer beads.
The addition of adipic acid protects the stored glass panes from glass corrosion. Depending on the glass and the ambient humidity, the proportion of these corrosion-inhibiting additives can be chosen between 0 % and 50 %.
KSL esplas powders can be applied very economically, e.g. with a classic powder device or with modern minimum application systems.
Our contribution to sustainability:
We also offer microplastic-free interleaving powders for storage and transport of float glass. First test results on lab scale are very promising. If you want to test our microplastic-free separating powders in your production, please contact our application advice.
We support our customers in the testing phase with our innovative interleaving powder developments based on renewable raw materials and biodegradable components.
