Coatings & Lamination

Coatings and Laminations


Recylable and repulpable, FlexSHIELD is a revolutionary water-based treatment that is not only water- and grease-resistant, but also is FDA compliant for direct food contact and is certified by the Fibre Box Association. It works like polyethylene; however, it's 100% compostable and better in nearly every measurable way.

Used in concert with SurfSHIELD coated and laminated sheets, FluteSHIELD protects both your product and the environment. Boxes and cartons utilizing both innovations are FDA and CFIA compliant for direct food contact—and unlike those with wax coatings, are 100% recyclable and repulpable.
