Smart Planet Technologies Introduces Eco-Friendly Barrier Coating

Earthcoating applicationsSmart Planet Technologies has announced a new coating, EarthCoating Hyper-barrier (HB40), that the company says provides a cost-effective, environmentally friendlier alternative to Polyvinilidene Chloride (PVdC) coatings in barrier folding carton packaging.

PVdC coatings, often used in folding carton packaging applications such as dry laundry detergent packaging, can release dioxins and furans if incinerated, Smart Planet Technologies says.

The Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants, an international environmental treaty with 152 member country signatories, seeks to eliminate chemicals such as PVdC that can produce dioxins and furans.

The EarthCoating HB40 resin is a non-toxic coating blend that the company says outperforms PVdC coatings without any dioxin or furan-producing compounds. EarthCoating HB40 is FDA-compliant for direct food contact.

The company says EarthCoating HB40 can be integrated into the existing supply chain. Paperboard materials using EarthCoating HB40 can be die-cut, folded and glued using existing converting machinery. EarthCoating HB40 can be extrusion-coated using existing equipment and at standard commercial production line speeds.
