New barrier papers for packaging
Paper has long been the number one recyclable mono material. Accordingly, Sappi has expanded its portfolio of barrier papers and is now offering businesses a vast range of innovative packaging paper solutions.
A 91 g/m² version was recently added to the high barrier paper range. It opens up additional applications for manufacturers of branded goods. The papers feature barriers against oxygen, water vapour, grease and mineral oil. They also offer good print results, a wide range of finishing options, complete recyclability and integrated heat sealability.
‘Our considerable expertise in functional paper packaging is also evident in low grammages with an integrated mineral oil and grease barrier. These light papers with grammages of 75 g/m² and higher are particularly popular,’ said René Köhler, head of business development packaging and speciality papers at Sappi Europe. They prevent any mineral oil from getting into the final product. This keeps products such as rice, cereals, tea and chocolate free of MOSH and MOAH residue. Sappi Guard MS also offers impressive heat sealability, resulting in a reduction in production steps as additional sealing media are not required. The company offers these packaging papers in several other grammages, which are ideally suited to primary and secondary packaging.
