Oil & Grease Barrier Coatings

Oil & Grease Barrier Coatings

Imerys ready-to-use, water-based coating minerals and formulations impart a functional barrier against ingress of oil and grease for fiber-based packaging.
Our range of Oil & Grease Resistance (OGR) coatings include highly versatile coatings that provide additional features like water barrier and release properties, to economical coatings that provide the just-optimum solution.


  • Bakery
  • Fast food
  • Dry food


Our coatings provide KIT values of 12 to 16 in case of application with metered size press, blade & rod coaters, or flexo printers. These coatings allow for a cost-effective alternative to traditional barrier solutions like PE lamination, wax coatings or fluorochemicals.

Our coating solutions can be customized to meet specific performance requirements.


  • Glueable with both hot melt and cold set adhesives
  • Can combine properties of release and moisture vapor barrier as required
  • FDA/BfR compliant for food contact
  • Repulpable
  • Heat sealable if required
  • Can be adapted for varied grades of fiber-based substrates – carton, corrugated or flexible paper
  • Can be applied using conventional coating techniques (curtain, blade, rod, size press), or via flexo and rotogravure
  • Easy to handle and safe to apply
