Fødevare coatings

Michelman coatings er vandbaserede, fremstillet ved lavt energiforbrug og er sikre at benytte. Naturen beskyttes, da produkter med Michelman coating kan genanvendes – og i fleste tilfælde giver samme eller bedre effekt end alternativerne PE, PP, FC og voks. Da emballagen i fremstillingsprocessen og hos slutkunden er genanvendelig, kan overskydende returemballage recycles og genbruges.

Vores mission er at fremme fordelene ved fuldstændig vandnedbrydelig og miljøvenlig fødevareemballage ved

  • Forsat udskiftning af PE-film og FC-barierrer
  • Flere ovnfaste- og engangsemballager til færdigretter
  • Flere muligheder for Flexopålægning af vore coatings
  • Introduktion af coatings på papirtallerkener og kartonskåle

VaporCoat®

VaporCoat®

VaporCoat® is recyclable water-based coatings confer high barrier to paper-based packaging and wraps. Designed for low moisture vapor transmission rate (MVTR), most VaporCoat® grades retard water vapor transmission to keep perishable foods fresh, frozen goods intact, or sensitive contents in factory condition.

  • Moisture and water resistance
  • Grease resistance
  • Release
  • Repulpable and recyclable
  • PFAS-free

Michem® Coat

Michem® Coat

Michem® Coat solutions are superior all-around coatings known for their grease and oil resistance. They also offer several other benefits including stain control, abrasion resistance, ease of off-line application, good gluing, surface sealing, and priming for subsequent applications. Typical packaging applications include bakery products, fast foods, pizza boxes, adhesive packaging, electrical components, and metal parts.:

  • Oil and grease barrier
  • Water resistance
  • Release
  • Cold-set and hot-melt gluable
  • Repulpable and recyclable
  • Food contact compliant options
  • PFAS-free

Plate Kote™

Plate Kote™

Paper goods manufacturers rely on Michelman’s special line of Plate Kote™ overprint varnishes for the oil/water resistance their plates and bowls need. Because Plate Kote™ is coated on the paper stock before the shapes are punched out, easy release from forming dies is also important.

Michelman’s formulators and regulatory specialists work closely with clients to develop high-performance solutions that meet FDA requirements.

SofTak®

SofTak®

Softak® is an easy-to-apply water-based, functional coating that increases the angle of skid of paper to 30-45 degrees. By preventing slippage, it enhances the transport efficiency of palletized loads, boxes and furniture.

  • Easy to apply with conventional corrugated coaters or offline
  • Gluable with a wide range of hot-melt or cold-set adhesives
  • Print receptive
  • Repulpable in both acid and alkaline systems
  • Film-forming
  • High coefficient of friction
  • Alternative to spray applications
  • Suede-like feel after drying

Nomar®

Nomar®

Abrasion-resistant Nomar™ coatings eliminate the common abrasion that occurs between the inside of the shipping container and the packaged item.

The need for abrasion resistance has increased dramatically as recycled fibers have replaced softer virgin kraft. Painted products are particularly more prone to abrasion today because they are often packed before the finish is fully cured. Nomar™ enables packing before the paint reaches full hardness without the risk of scuffing.

  • Cold-set and hot-melt gluable
  • Can withstand the heat of corrugation
  • Non-offsetting
  • Tough and durable
  • Repulpable
  • FDA approved

DigiPrime® 1500LA

DigiPrime® 1500LA

DigiPrime®1500LA is a product that can be added to size press treatments or pigment coatings to optimize substrates for HP Indigo printability. This product provides excellent adhesion of HP Indigo Electroinks® to paper. Its low pH allows incorporation into a wide range of formulations.

Pålægningsmetoder

Coating kan påføres in og offline med rod/ blade eller flexo. Ved flexopålægning anbefales dækning med flere enheder. En typisk coating har et tørstofsindhold 40-50%.
Med to coatere eller flere flexo enheder inline er det muligt at påføre flere lag – f.eks. primer og topcoat – for at opnå en ekstraordinær stærk barriere, læs MWTR, Cobb og KIT, værdier.
Inline film- eller size-press samt med blade- eller rodcoater.

Flere coatings er udviklet til høje temperaturer til brug i f.eks. bølgepapmaskiner.
Vi rådgiver gerne om valg af coatings samt af udstyr, og leverer også coaters.
