SUSTAINABLE SOLUTIONS FOR PAPER AND PAPERBOARD PACKAGING WITH TEKNOS BARRIER COATINGS

Current trends are leading to increased use of packaging, especially in food and e-commerce.
At the same time, the message a package sends becomes more important. This means the need for more eco-friendly packaging solutions with recyclable and reusable alternatives is real.
Barrier coatings can help to enable wider use of fibre-based material and reduce the amount of plastics used in packaging.

RECYCLABILITY WITH BARRIER COATINGS

The desire for sustainable and recyclable packaging is accelerating, while the legislation is directing the industry to develop alternatives to replace traditional packaging.

Teknos is answering the need by developing barrier coatings for the packaging industry. These barriers give fibre-based packaging materials excellent protection against water and grease, and they comply with the food-contact material legislation. Barriers can be applied by various coating technologies on 2D and 3D surfaces, on-line or off-line.

WHAT IS A BARRIER COATING FOR PACKAGING?

Barrier coating provides a certain functionality on a fibre-based product. It can protect against water, oil, oxygen, harmful substances, or other elements without compromising the quality of the packed product or the environment around the packaging. Coating can also bring other functionalities, for example anti-microbial or fire-resistant properties as well as visual and haptic effects to the package.
