Michem® Flex HS 268
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.See more VaporCoat products.
Used for heat sealing or dry bond lamination applications, offering low temperature seal initiation and stronger bonds to paper, metal (foil or metalized surface), various primed films such as matt, pearlized cavitated BOPP or BOPET films. It should be used with the addition of a wax emulsion to control the coefficient of friction (typically 2 to 4% by weight) e.g. Michem® Lube 160 RPH.
