Protected food, more sustainable packaging
Resources-saving materials that are easy to recycle have become decisive when it comes to choosing suitable packaging for branded goods. As a trendsetter in paper-based packaging with integrated functions and as the world’s leading provider of sustainable solutions, Sappi now offers its customers even more possibilities with the optimised papers in its Sappi Guard family.
Sappi Guard M has a mineral oil barrier and, with Kit 11, a very high grease barrier. Sappi Guard MS also impresses with its heat sealability, eliminating the need for additional production steps and materials as sealing media. The grease barrier is Kit 7. Sappi offers both papers in two variants: “Nature” is uncoated and has a natural, more tactile feel, whilst “Silk” stands out with enhanced printing results and a silky matt appearance.
Brand owners can use the four sustainable paper solutions from the globally available Guard family as primary or secondary packaging for dry and slightly oily foods such as pasta, rice, cereals and various powders. Guard M barrier papers are also suitable as liners for transport packaging, as they prevent mineral oil from recycled cardboard and paper from migrating into the food. At this year’s FachPack and with the aid of various practical examples, Sappi will show how diversely and versatilely the optimised barrier papers can be used.
