Vegetable-based packaging coatings for heat seal & barrier functionality in paper-based packaging
Nowax™ – sustainable packaging solutions from nature
Wax paper is frequently omitted in the teaching of packaging technology to today’s engineers and is therefore often overlooked. Despite a general lack of awareness, wax coated paper offers a significant number of benefits in the context of today’s economic and environmental setting. Formulated wax coatings can provide the desired moisture and water resistance, excellent release from the packed goods, high gloss and a degree of heat sealability. They are also simple to apply and give excellent machineability on modern high-speed packing lines with excellent slip and no static build-up.
As well as their renewable origin, vegetable wax coatings offer a solution to all ‘end of life’ scenarios.
