Barrier Coatings

Barrier coatings are an important tool in the production of sustainable packaging and the achievement of a higher recycling rate. By using barrier coatings, the use of environmentally harmful plastic films can be dispensed with in many cases. 

The water-based and solvent-based barrier coatings offered by Adesiv GmbH are used for cardboard or film coatings. When used on cardboard, the barrier coating is characterized by its grease- and water-repellent properties. When used for films, the coating has a water-repellent and oxygen-impermeable effect, which is why the barrier coating is particularly suitable for the food industry. Typical applications include packaging for fruit and meat and for animal feed.

Barriers against oxygen, water vapor, liquids, grease, oil and chemicals are built up with the help of the coatings. In combination, multiple barriers can also be achieved for special applications, such as interior coatings to repel liquids and fats.
