VaporCoat® recyclable water-based coatings confer high barrier to paper-based packaging and wraps. Designed for low moisture vapor transmission rate (MVTR), most VaporCoat® grades retard water vapor transmission to keep perishable foods fresh, frozen goods intact, or sensitive contents in factory condition. Because of recent demands by consumers for food safety and preservation, additional VaporCoat® products can inhibit contaminants ordinarily found in recycled paper from migrating into packaged dry food.
• moisture and water resistance • grease resistance • release • print receptivity • repulpable and recyclable • PFAS-free
Michem® Coat solutions are superior all-around coatings known for their grease and oil resistance. They also offer several other benefits, including stain control, abrasion resistance, ease of off-line application, good gluing, surface sealing, and priming for subsequent applications. Typical packaging applications include bakery products, fast foods, pizza boxes, adhesive packaging, electrical components, and metal parts.
• oil and grease barrier • water resistance • release • cold-set and hot-melt gluable • repulpable and recyclable • food contact compliant options • PFAS-free
HydraBan® products combine two properties critical to packers of perishable and building products: water-resistance and release. They penetrate the paper, giving a wax-impregnated look to kraft paper without sacrificing recyclability. These paper treatments also offer water repellency with excellent gluability and printability.
