Substances such as oil, fat or water have a strong influence on the quality of packaging. They attack the substrate, can damage the printing ink or impair the contents. A barrier is therefore essential in many cases.
Until now, PE layers have generally been used as a barrier for packaging. However, the poor recyclability of PE layers – and thus the high use of plastic – is a major drawback in terms of sustainability. PE layers are increasingly falling into disrepute and are subject to ever more comprehensive regulation. At the same time, legal requirements for the recycling or disposal of such production materials represent a major challenge for many processing companies.
Solutions are increasingly being sought at all levels to avoid additional plastic waste.
The requirements for alternative barrier solutions are manifold. Thus, they must not only provide a high level of functionality and enable efficient processes, but also be sustainable, as in terms of recyclability. In most cases, water-based barrier coating solutions can be used as a very good alternative for the packaging’s lifetime.
In this one-hour WebSeminar you will:
– See how to replace PE-layers
– Discover the advantages of alternative barrier solutions
– Learn more about water-based barrier coatings for packaging converters and printers or the paper industry as well as the novel aqueous thermoplastic elastomer dispersions, offering a wide range of coating solutions for packaging materials and different substrates.
