Mitsubishi HiTec Paper Introduces New Recyclable Barrier Paper For Flexible Food Packaging


With Mitsubishi HiTec Paper’s new barricote BAG WGOM (89g), Mitsubishi is launching a particularly sustainable barrier paper for flexible food packaging, which has a universal multi-barrier. It protects food and consumers not only from water vapour, grease or oil and oxygen or aroma, but also from mineral oil migration (MOSH/MOAH), thus offering a particularly wide barrier protection.

The paper, produced from virgin fibres, consists of a particularly high proportion of renewable raw materials, and is 100% free of plastic films, aluminium and fluorocarbons. BAG WGOM is approved for direct food contact as well as being FSC or PEFC TM certified.

‘Furthermore, BAG WGOM is fully recyclable,’ said Michael Kater, sales manager for barrier papers at Mitsubishi. ‘Due to its very good heat-sealability, it is particularly suitable for heat-sealed bag packaging of dry and greasy foods, and it is the intelligent alternative to film packaging made of PE, PP or BOPP film. This fits in perfectly with the theme of Fachpack 2019: environmentally friendly packaging.’
