EcoShield® Barrier Coating is a waterborne barrier coating that is recyclable and 100% repulpable, effectively eliminating the need to use traditional wax and polyethylene papers. In addition, the coating can be utilized on kraft and recycled paper to seal the surface from contaminants that could cause corrosion. The combination of a contaminant sealant and a repulpable coating for kraft paper makes EcoShield® Barrier Coating a pioneer in the packaging industry. This material can also be used as a coating on liners for corrugated boxes to provide a water repellent moisture barrier. EcoShield® Barrier Coating also gives excellent oil and grease resistance. Historically, polyethylene and wax coatings have been used to seal porous paper, corrugated boxes, and sheets to provide a water and/or water-vapor barrier to these substrates. The resulting paper product is an environmental problem and cannot be recycled through normal channels.
