UPM Specialty Papers launches Confidio and Confidio Pro barrier papers

Packaging Solutions

UPM Specialty Papers has presented the latest innovative additions to its extensive selection of sustainable and recyclable packaging papers. UPM Confidio and UPM Confidio Pro combine moisture, and grease resistance with excellent heat sealing properties. This makes the materials stand out in the market and offers a concrete competitive edge.

In building a future beyond fossils, the company provides the packaging industry with innovative and renewable solutions from sustainably managed forests.

Made from renewable fibres, Confidio and Confidio Pro are repulpable and designed to be recycled in regular fibre recycling streams.

In addition, Confidio Pro offers superior print results through all printing methods, resulting in a saturated outcome with sharper and more vivid colours. The combination of heat sealability, moisture resistance, grease resistance, and a mineral oil barrier makes it an optimal choice for a wide range of end uses.

‘Our goal is to replace conventional fossil based packaging and increase the share of renewable packaging solutions. With features supporting both primary and secondary packaging, UPM Confidio and Confidio Pro are recyclable, cost effective and safe to use. The products offer excellent convertability and enable a visual look which makes brands stand out on the shelf. By combining all these elements, the UPM Confidio line of exciting packaging products are almost too good to be true,’ said Tommi Heinonen, head of sales EMEA.

The papers are suitable as both primary and secondary packaging for dry, greasy, and frozen food products. They are FDA and BfR compliant and safe for direct food contact.

‘Heat sealability was a top priority for our stakeholders and our goal was to provide them with high quality, recyclable solutions. Developing our research and development functions even further and creating these cutting edge packaging products has been a significant investment for us. A novel packaging process and improved analytical capabilities at the UPM Research Centre enable us to test product features, create samples, and complete prototype phases,’ said Janne Varvemaa, director, products and technology.
