CINCINNATI, OH (March 22, 2023) – Sustainability initiatives rolling out across the globe are catalyzing brands and converters to seek out paradigm-shifting technologies that facilitate improved end-of-life solutions for flexible packaging structures—including both fiber based and film based substrates. You can learn more about this topic during a lively presentation entitled "Integrated Solutions For Recycle-Ready High Barrier Packaging" that will be jointly presented by Michelman's Lori Gobris and BOBST's Chris Marshall at Converters Expo 2023.
Michelman, in conjunction with partners BOBST and UPM, developed new coating technologies in total packaging solutions that can match the high barrier performance of today’s multi-material laminations. These new solutions enable production of mono-material constructions that can enhance the recyclability of the finished product. Gobris' and Marshall's presentation will detail the development and capabilities of these technologies.
Gobris said, "The next generation of multifunctional oxygen primers that Michelman created provide enhanced barrier properties at low coat weight while simultaneously enabling metallization of core substrates. This innovation, developed in collaboration with BOBST and partners, results in two groundbreaking sustainable packaging solutions. oneBARRIER PrimeCycle is a full PE mono-material barrier alternative to nonrecyclable metallized film, and oneBARRIER FibreCycle is a paper-based packaging solution designed to replace high barrier film packaging.”
