Barrier Coatings

barrier-coatings.jpgConsumer demand for environmentally-friendly cups and food packaging has increased dramatically in recent years, putting pressure on papermakers to expand their offerings. Solenis barrier coatings are water-based polymers and solid biowaxes derived from renewable resources. Paper and board coated with these technologies are re-pulpable, recyclable and compostable.

Solenis offers a range of barrier coating formulations that can be adapted to accommodate a number of requirements, including printability, flexibility/elasticity and glueability. They can be applied on the paper machine coaters, off-machine coaters, or during converting on wax applicators or corrugators.
