CVI offers an alternative solution to coating papers for the packaging industry. Our system can coat wood-pulp paper, film and mineral paper and can be customizable to customer gas and moisture barrier requirements.
Our product replaces the need for plastic-film/wax papers. This technology is changing the landscape of the industry.
Over the last few years, the food packaging business has gone through major changes that have resulted in the introduction of more ‘green’ and sustainable packaging. The most common method today is the inexpensive PET(Polyethylene terephthalate) film.
But as the green requirements increase so does the fact that PET (Polyethylene terephthalate) is not easily recyclable.
CVI has a system utilizing specific coating methods to make a 100% recyclable, biodegradable, repulpable and compostable packaging product for food or electronics component packaging.
CVI has Patented and developed a unique system that allows a proprietary water-based (not solvent based) coating to be ‘printed’ onto the substrates.
CVI T8001M™ – is designed to replace petroleum based waxes, such as paraffin wax, as well as plastic film such as Polyethylene, BOPP etc. that are commonly used in paper food packaging. Its unique characteristics make it extremely useful in applications where the packaging is to be recycled after use. Paper and corrugated board treated with CVI T8001M™ will resist and repel water and humidity as efficiently as paraffinic waxes that are currently used today for shipping meats and produce.
Superior water, grease and oil resistance used on film, paper or paperboard.
Low MVTR (< 0.115 g/100 sq in/24 hours)
Low OTR (< 1.9 CC/100 sq in/24 hours)
CVI T8001M™ provides high strength and pigment compatibility. Our functional coatings exhibiting superior water, water vapor, oil and grease repellency. CVI T8001M™ exhibits excellent mechanical stability and can be applied to a variety of substrates using various application methods.
