Functional barriers

With our Polyethylene (PE) coatings, films and foils applied to paper and board we can provide you with a damp-proof and/or oil-proof packaging, so that migration of hazardous substances becomes a thing of the past. This technique is mainly used in the food industry in order to ensure that your food will be well preserved. Substances will not be able to enter or leave the packaging.


Applications of functional barriersMint Toffees

  • 6mi-12mi ultra-thin aluminium foil with extra barrier properties.
  • Laminated LDPE and HDPE foils with barrier properties mainly used in the food industry.
  • Biodegradable foils for extra robustness and increased tear resistance of the packaging without bringing any harm to the environment.


Biodegradable foils

We can apply biodegradable foils to your packaging. The biodegradable foil is transparent and will increase the appearance, robustness and tear resistance of the paper and board it is applied to. The foils are made of corn and are biodegradable in about 5 years time.


Heat resistant foils

Besides the films and foils mentioned above, we can also provide you with heat resistant foils that are often applied to bread and bakery packaging. This application will give you the option to heat the food with the packaging in the microwave or oven to experience ultimate cooking convenience.
