Environmentally friendly replacement for PE and wax coated papers

1 August 2014

Made from "the highest quality recycled paper", Cortec's patented EcoShield Paper and Linerboard offers a safe and economical packaging product with a water based barrier coating. It is fully recyclable/repulpable "while displaying barrier properties better than those of wax or polyethylene coated paper or linerboards".

Unlike other barrier packaging EcoShield Paper, can readily be recycled into boxes, cartonboard and corrugated materials, as well as repulped to make new paper products. There is no need for costly processes to separate the paper base from the coating. This environmentally safe product also shows excellent oil and grease resistance perfectly combining moisture barrier properties and oil and grease resistivity into one step, according to Cortec.

In addition to being safe to the environment, this new material is stated to be in compliance with FDA regulations under 21 code of Federal Regulations for food contact. It can be used in applications where direct or indirect food contact may occur. In manufacturing process there is no chlorine or other bleaching chemicals which completely eliminates package contamination found with other papers on the market.
