New barrier papers from Sappi
Sappi has added a new substance, 91 g/m², to the high-barrier paper range and is enhancing the light barrier papers range with the inclusion of a 75 g/m².
The 91 g/m² range offers product protection thanks to its oxygen, steam, grease and oil barriers, which opens up additional applications for manufacturers of branded goods.
“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,” says 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 heat sealability, resulting in a reduction in production steps as additional sealing media are not required.
Sappi offers these packaging papers in several other grammages, which are ideally suited to primary and secondary packaging.
Sappi will present further innovations in functional paper packaging and other product groups at interpack 2020.
