Film/ Personal Care
Barrier coatings could be applied on the board surface on one or both sides. To provide critical properties such as humidity control, sealing properties, airtightness, light protection, oxygen permeability, aroma barrier, heat resistance, peel ability and grease proof.
Using MFC to create coatings and films featuring excellent barrier properties to preserve aromas and to protect against gases like oxygen, and even grease and oil. Possible replacing plastic films in packaging. Or aluminum foil in long shelf-life packages. So, by using bio-based MFC barrier films we could reduce the fossil in billions of food and beverage products.
Specific barrier coatings enable you to protect, control odor and prolong the shelf life of your product. You can get the most economical packaging solution and outstanding performance from the excellent printing and conversion properties of paperboard. You can increase the share of renewable materials in your packaging and minimize the use of non-renewable materials, while enabling effective recycling and minimizing waste and the environmental impact of your packaging.
Multiple paper grades have been produced with different raw materials, including an OCC (old corrugated container) packaging grade consisting of low-cost recycled fiber. The paper that had been treated with MFC as a thin coating layer demonstrated greater wet and dry strength, enhanced surface characteristics. Surface application of the MFC resulted in dramatically improved fiber coverage, reduced air porosity, and improved surface smoothness.
MFC can be added directly to the furnish or to the surface of OCC. A tiny amount of MFC goes a long way. By converting a small portion of wood pulp to MFC and mixing it into the mass, you can make paper or paperboard with the same strength, opacity and brightness but use less fiber. The large surface area of MFC allows for stronger composites, increases bonding strength, saving weight and material.
MFC is a completely natural and infinitely sustainable cellulose-based performance enhancer that improves rheology and stability in paint, coating and cementitious systems, as well as increasing your formulation efficiency. It is suitable where shear thinning and high viscosity recovery rate are critical to performance. We present superior barrier properties, giving the finished paint improved durability characteristics and is therefore as applicable to outdoor paints as to indoor paints, as well as industrial coatings. Adding very small amounts quickly improved spraying through very fast viscosity recovery and excellent anti-sag properties.
MFC also has a new and innovative performance enhancer for. cementitious systems, where maintaining a homogeneous material mix and preventing segregation are critical performance parameters. It is particularly suitable when a non-sticky cementitious system is required for improved ease of application and it can reduce pressure on concrete formworks, as well as improving levels of spray rebound from concrete and mortar. A very small amount of MFC quickly achieves the required rheological property, securing high viscosity at rest, as well as giving strong stability and rapid viscosity build-up. At the same time, it offers a high shear thinning effect, ensuring low plastic viscosity.
MFC has a great performance enhancer for adhesive and personal care. systems, that is also an environmentally friendly alternative solution for next generation. It is a characterized by its ability to form stable three-dimensional networks of microfibers in sealant, and delocalizes stress during drying and can also control dry-out time. It is also delivered pre-activated, with no need for rehydration, ensuring a flexible process and end product.
Ours Microfibrillar Cellulose (MFC), represents the next generation of. natural performance enhancers for personal care systems.It shows the ability to reduce wrinkles and improve the tactual sensation of oil-in-water creams. It also gives a positive effect on the ability to spray thick formulations and improves non-dripping performance. The excellent performance is its unique combination for both physically and chemically interacted with its surroundings.
