Michem® Coat 82

Brand Family Overview

VaporCoat® recyclable water-based coatings confer high barrier to paper-based packaging and wraps. Most VaporCoat grades are designed for “low MVTR”, to retard water vapor transmission in order to keep perishables fresh, frozen goods intact, or sensitive contents in factory condition. In response to market interest for greater food safety and preservation, additional VaporCoat products can inhibit contaminants ordinarily found in recycled paper from migrating into packaged dry food.

A repulpable, printable, and cold set gluable coating optimized for water resistance and higher COF. It also offers intermediate MVTR protection. Common uses include packaging for produce and meats, or anywhere packaged goods require protection from water or moisture vapor. It can be used alone as a single bump, or can be an ideal basecoat for other barrier-enhancing Michelman coatings.
