Paper Packaging For A Sustaiable Future New Barrier Papers From Thr Innovation Leader Sappi

Paper has long been the number one recyclable mono-material. Accordingly, the market leader Sappi has expanded its portfolio of barrier papers and is now offering businesses a vast range of innovative packaging paper solutions.

• Adding a new substance, 91 g/ m², to the high-barrier paper range
• A range that offers optimal product protection thanks to its oxygen, steam, grease and oil barriers
• Enhancing the light barrier papers range with the inclusion of a 75 g/m²
Research and development is very important at Sappi, the result of which is the development of an ex-eptional level of expertise. One key area is packaging paper with integrated functionality. “No other provider on the market anywhere in the world offers as many solutions and applications as we do. Customers from every part of the globe therefore, put their trust in us and use Sappi material to package their goods,” says Thomas Kratochwill, Vice President Sales & Marketing Packaging and Speciality Papers at Sappi Europe, highlighting the company’s position as an innovation leader.

And demand is increasing, as more and more companies from a wide range of industries is looking to com- bine sustainability and optimal pro- tection in their packaging solutions.
Endless possibilities with Sappi paper
A 91 g/m² version was recently add- ed to the 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 of the market leader offer even more – outstanding print results, a wide range of finishing options, complete recyclability and integrated heat sealability.

High demand for low grammages “Our considerable expertise in Functional Paper Packaging is also evident in low grammages with an inte- grated mineral oil and grease barrier. These light papers with grammages of 75 g/m² and higher are particularly popular,” says René Köhler, Head of Business Development Packaging and Speciality Papers at Sappi Eu- rope.
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.
Successful collaborations with customers and partners
In addition to research and development, Sappi counts on close collaboration with its customers and other partners.
This results in future-oriented solutions such as environmentally friendly, multifunctional packaging for a new range of nut and fruit bars recently launched by the world’s largest food company.

Sappi will present further innovations in functional paper packaging and other product groups at interpack 2020.
