delfort, global innovation leader in the development, manufacturing and distribution of special and functional papers, expands its portfolio with a fluorochemical-free, oil and grease-resistant packaging paper namely thinbarrier OGR eco.
thinbarrier OGR eco performs with excellent oil and grease-repellant properties and is, at the same time, environmentally friendly.
QSR’s and the food service industry are increasingly requesting fluorochemical-free alternatives for food packaging that outperform the existing fluorine treated papers in both sustainability and functionality. Papers used for direct wrapping or packing of grease-containing food products such as hamburgers, wraps, french fries, soup cubes and many more, require added barriers to keep oil and grease from seeping through the packaging.
“thinbarrier OGR eco is an excellent alternative to fluorine containing packaging papers with superior converting properties,” says Christoph Wachter, head of business area ecopac at delfort. This solution is tailor-made for oil and grease resistant consumer packaging due to its lipophobic properties. The machine-finished paper is available in a basis weight range of 35 – 46 g/m².
thinbarrier OGR eco is highly eco-friendly. Produced from renewable resources, thinbarrier OGR eco paper is biodegradable and both compostable and recyclable in those areas where composting and recycling facilities are available. The eco-friendly coating is free from fossil based raw materials and any substances derived from animals. Additionally all raw materials are of GMO (genetically manipulated organism) free origin.
thinbarrier OGR eco complies with the requirements for direct food contact applications of both the German Federal Institute for Risk Evaluation (BfR) and the US American regulatory agency FDA.
