Archromahas launched the latest innovation in their Cartaseal portfolio, the Cartaseal OGB F10. The Cartaseal OGB F10 is a water-based, oil and grease resistant barrier coating that enables papermakers to provide high-quality and sustainable packaging by replacing fluoro based substances and polyethylene with a recyclable and repulpable coating. It is FDA and BfR compliant, making it suitable for the manufacturing of paper and board for food and non-food contact.

Key features and benefits of the Cartaseal OGB F10 include:

  • A strong oil and grease barrier which offers protection against oil and grease, ensuring the integrity and freshness of packaged goods. Its formulation guarantees high resistance, providing peace of mind for both manufacturers and consumers;
  • A significant oil and grease resistance (OGR) for folding box board and flexible paper packaging application, without compromising on performance;
  • And recyclability and repulpability, which facilitates easy recycling and repulping processes, contributing to a more sustainable packaging lifecycle. In addition, as it contains bio-based raw materials, Cartaseal OGB F10 supports brands and papermakers in their journey towards sustainability by minimising reliance on oil-based substances.

“We are excited to introduce Cartaseal OGB F10 to the market, our latest barrier solution that addresses key challenges in the packaging industry while upholding our commitment to sustainability,” said Sameer Singla, CEO PP&C at Archroma. “With its unmatched oil and grease resistance, exceptional foldability, and sustainability features, Cartaseal OGB F10 represents a significant advancement in packaging technology, empowering businesses to meet evolving consumer demands while reducing their environmental footprint.”
