ENVIRONMENT-FRIENDLY BARRIER COATING SOLUTIONS
Imerys barrier coating formulations are environment-friendly solutions for the food and non-food segments of the fiber-based packaging industry.
Coatings that contain polyethylene, fluorochemicals or waxes hinder the recyclability and repulpability of post-consumer packaging. Imerys barrier coatings such as our Barrikote™ formulation provide a sustainable alternative to wax, fluorochemicals and petrochemical-based extruded or laminated polymers such as polyethylene.
Barrikote™ can be applied by metered size press, blade & rod coaters, or flexo printers.
Barrikote™ coating solutions are ideal for:
- Moisture vapor barrier coatings
- Oil and grease barrier coatings
- Water barrier coatings
Barrikote™ allows paper-based packaging to meet surface quality requirements in terms of:
- Brightness and opacity
We offer a full range of bespoke formulation and technical and process support services to help you match the right mineral grade to your application requirement.
