Natural based, functional barrier coatings
Packaging is historically the domain of polymer based coatings, now Earthcoatings™ provide natural, sustainable, PE, Silicone and Fluoro Chemical replacements with safe alternatives that out perform conventional coatings for some of the largest brand owners and packaging converters.
Our coatings can be found in all areas of food and beverage packaging, providing barriers to migration and protecting against absorption of food and chemical residues.
Applied during substrate production or conversion our coatings are designed to meet or exceed industry test processes.
Based on up to 100% natural, renewable, food safe materials Earthcoatings™ are fully sustainable and suitable for direct food contact. This offers cost neutral performance against traditional fluorochemical and extrusion coated technologies.
We have specially developed our coating technologies for applications in the following markets…
Board and Paper Mill
All EarthCoatings™ can be applied during substrate production. At board or paper mill our products are stable and commercially beneficial, being applied by via a range of metering technologies to develop natural alternatives to PE, Flouro chemical and Silicone coatings.
For mono or multi-layer flexible packaging production on narrow, medium and wide web formats EarthCoatings™ are utilised to provide functional barrier protection, controlled MVTR, heat seal properties and provide sustainable alternatives to the use of PE, Flouro Chemicals and Silicone.
Whether applied via coating rollers or flexographic print units EarthCoatings™ provide packaging converters with viable alternatives to PE coatings. Providing the opportunity to add value to a wide range of paper and board specifications without the cost of extrusion coated materials.
Natural based, food safe coatings designed to provide a replacement for silicone. Our release coatings are designed to replace conventional mill and extrusion applied coatings and have the added benefit of being tailored for flexographic applications on to board and paper substrates.
Whether applied via coating rollers or flexographic print units EarthCoatings™ provide packaging converters with the flexibility to add value to a wide range of paper and board specifications on-press or off-line.
EarthCoatings™ provide natural barriers to grease and oils within food products. Additional features include release properties, BFR/ FDA compliance, inclusion of safe migration ingredients, non GM and allergen free.
