Flexible Packaging

Functional Coatings

Michem® Lube wax emulsions are added to water-based flexible packaging coatings to maximize the efficiency of form, fill and seal operations, and provide slip control, anti-blocking, mar resistance, and release. Michem® Flex formulated coatings work with both film and paper applications and offer gas, mineral, and moisture barriers with options available for food contact compliance.
