US-based Michelman, the global developer of water-based barrier and functional coatings for flexible film packaging, has recently launched the water based repulpable coating Nomar 70AFN. Michelman has described its new product as capable of eliminating abrasiveness of packaging and partitions, reducing significantly occurrence of product damage.
Nomar 70AFN is a water based and repulpable coating that when applied to the inside of packaging and packaging partitions eliminates the common abrasion that occurs between the inside of the shipping container, any partitions that may be used, and the packaged item.
The coating is FDA approved, and is gluable with both cold set and hot melt glues. It is generally used to provide abrasion protection for snack food packaging, small appliances, furniture and various painted or scratchable products.
Nomar 70AFN is non-offsetting, meaning it won’t rub off on the items being packaged, and is formulated to withstand the heat of corrugation. It can be applied offline, on a corrugator or on flexo printing equipment.
Michelman is a global developer of water-based barrier and functional coatings for flexible film packaging, paperboard, and corrugated cartons; and water-based surface modifiers, additives and polymers for numerous industries including wood care, industrial coatings, inks, fibers, composites, and construction products.
