All Koehler fast-food barrier paper now free from acrylates
The products Koehler NexPlus® OGR and Koehler NexPlus® Wrap now not only do without the use of fluorochemicals, but also without the use of acrylate. This makes them the sustainable, environmentally friendly alternative to the packaging paper previously used in the fast food sector.
With Koehler NexPlus® OGR and Koehler NexPlus® Wrap, Koehler Paper, a leading provider of paper with a disruptive barrier function for packaging solutions, has developed its fast-food paper further and brought it more into line with customer demand for sustainability. These products are now not only made without the use of fluorochemicals, as they have always been, but also without the use of acry-lates, making them a sustainable and environmentally alternative to the packaging paper currently used in the fast-food sector.
Christoph Wachter, Head of the Flexible Packaging Paper division at Koehler Paper, says: “With this evolution, we have produced sustainable fast-food packaging that is entirely free from acrylates and fluorinated chemical coatings while offering the same properties as packaging that does include these. This ensures that the paper is also fully recyclable.” It exclusively uses pulp from certified sustainable forestry and controlled sources as its fiber material.
Back in 2019, Koehler Paper invested 300 million euros in flexible packaging paper with its new produc-tion line 8. Since then, the largest MG paper machine in the world has been producing flexible packag-ing paper with barrier coatings with a wide range of functions. These include, in particular, odor, grease, mineral oil, and even oxygen barriers. Paper produced by Koehler Paper is ideally suited for use as packaging: The paper really delivers in terms of the primary purposes of packaging: to protect the contents and their surroundings as well as provide excellent processing properties. Koehler has achieved high grease resistance of KIT Level 7 with its new paper Koehler NexPlus® OGR.
