One key focus area for Sappi is packaging paper with integrated functionality. The company has expanded its portfolio of barrier papers and is now offering businesses a vast range of innovative packaging paper solutions. A 91g/sqm version was recently added to Sappi’s high-barrier paper range.
It opens up additional applications for manufacturers of branded goods. All high-barrier papers from Sappi ensure that the product quality of foods and other goods is preserved. They feature barriers against oxygen, water vapour, grease and mineral oil. The solutions offer outstanding print results, a wide range of finishing options, complete recyclability and integrated heat sealability.
The new range offers optimal product protection thanks to its oxygen, steam, grease and oil barriers. The company has also enhanced the light barrier papers range with the inclusion of a 75g/sqm.
‘Our considerable expertise in Functional Paper Packaging is also evident in low grammages with an integrated mineral oil and grease barrier. These light papers with grammages of 75g/sqm and higher are particularly popular,’ said René Köhler, Head of Business Development Packaging and Speciality Papers at Sappi Europe. ‘They prevent any mineral oil from getting into the final product. This keeps products such as rice, cereals, tea and chocolate free of MOSH and MOAH residue. Sappi Guard MS also offers impressive heat sealability, resulting in a reduction in production steps as additional sealing media are not required. Sappi offers these packaging papers in several other grammages, which are ideally suited to primary and secondary packaging.’
