Water-Based Coatings Can Provide Heat-Sealable Performance
In response to client needs, market trends, and the push for more sustainable packaging, Cascades Sonoco has developed an innovative suite of water-based coatings. Several of the coatings have the properties of heat-seal ability without the presence of thermoplastics like polyethylene. Now, single-use markets like food service and heat-and-eat can select a recyclable, repulpable, and compostable container that offers a total replacement for plastic laminates.
The Cascades Sonoco line of water-based coatings are PFAS free. Our unique technologies offer adhesive performance and individualized features at a competitive cost compared to the more difficult-to-recycle counterparts.
Heat-Sealable Barrier Coating
Our unique chemistry mimics the heat-sealable properties of thermoplastics. This allows clients to use their existing manufacturing process with our new sustainable barrier coatings. When using our water-based technology, you may find that significantly less energy is required to manufacture the finished product.
Our sustainable coatings yield equivalent adhesion without the presence of thermoplastics, wax, or glue.
A key to creating sustainable products is identifying wasteful elements and eliminating excess. Our water-based coatings go beyond simply replacing plastics. We offer added precision, working with you to achieve your ideal performance and manufacturing specifications.
Plastic coatings are typically a one-size-fits-all solution, providing grease or water resistance for applications that may not require the extent of those features. Our client-first approach allows us to tailor the solution to the individual. We can select desirable properties while eliminating ones that aren’t needed.
We’re Moving Forward
We are a full-service company committed to developing successful commercial products. We can perfect the process because we direct the process: from the chemistry to the application to your exact manufacturing needs.
