Ulterion announces the introduction of its complete range of highly sustainable, PFAS- free oil and grease resistant (OGR) coatings for food packaging and baking applications.
Ulterion’s OGR coatings are manufactured by converting waste plastic and naturally occurring ingredients into a non-plastic coating that does not contain any PFOA, PFOS, styrene, silicone, PE, chromium or GMO ingredients.
The coatings provide protection for burger clamshells, sandwich wraps, donut and bakery boxes, pizza liners, baking sheets, butcher paper, pet food packaging and similar end-uses.
The coatings can be applied on the paper machine, off-machine by size press or by flexo, rod coater, curtain or blade coater. Ulterion sustainable OGR coatings offer oil and grease resistance and near-zero penetration. In addition to oil and grease resistance, they feature release properties.
“Ulterion OGR-coated paper packages are cost-neutral to PFAS, 100% repulpable, 100% recyclable and won’t inhibit compostability. Also, all Ulterion sustainable OGR coatings are FDA approved, BfR listed, are Proposition 65 compliant and Plastic Free per Directive (EU) 2019/904. That’s a win-win-win for brand owners, consumers and the environment,” notes Jain Chem sales manager Gil Sherman.
“We are so pleased to be able to extend our contribution to a circular economy with the introduction of Ulterion sustainable OGR coatings. By eliminating styrene acrylics from our formulas, Ulterion coatings enable our customers and brands to avoid Prop 65 labeling requirements,” Jain Chem CEO Manoj Jain said.
Paper and paperboard packages coated with Ulterion sustainable OGR coatings are available now from major paper mills and converters throughout North America and very soon in Europe.
