Sappi: new developments in barrier papers


So far, the trend in relation to flexible packaging has clearly been in favour of plastic, however, when it comes to sustainability, paper-based mono-solutions are far superior. Thanks to newly developed types of barrier paper, paper is becoming increasingly popular for flexible packaging in the food industry. For what type of applications are the new developments suitable and where is there still a need for action for a functional circulatory system?

The article “Can barrier paper replace plastic packaging?” answers all these questions and will be published in the July-August issue of Converter Flessibili-Carta-Cartone.
