Feldmuehle will unveil papers with mineral oil barrier capabilities at the upcoming Packaging Innovations 2017 to be held in Berlin, Germany.
The company claims to have taken it up as a challenge to protect foodstuffs against mineral oil contamination, after a study in 2012 found that mineral oil residues were found in 23 chocolate advent calendars.
The new papers can be used in packaged goods, especially foodstuffs to protect against mineral oil migration and contamination. The company says that at present, these papers are being used by brand owners in packaging dry and fatty foodstuffs.
MOB-Liner is a virgin fibre barrier coated paper and it particularly suits in inner bags in folding boxes and multiwall bags as long with lamination of corrugated boards.
The MOB-Flex is also a virgin fibre barrier coated paper and offers an effective mineral oil barrier with white, glossy surface. The new paper is claimed to be offering outstanding print quality for rotogravure and flexographic printed flexible packaging.
The company claims that the two new papers can be run optimally in packaging lines, while offering trouble-free adhesion with hot and cold glues.
The Feldmuehle barrier coating concept paper has been made from renewable fibres and the packaging offers protection against mineral oil migration from surrounding packaging, whether during primary or transit packaging.
This is particularly beneficial to brand owners who want to safely protect both their product and brand value whilst also ensuring food safety. Visit Feldmuehle at Packaging Innovations 2017 in Berlin, Stand F07.
