Wausau Paper microwave popcorn papersProPly (bleached) and Eco Select (unbleached) premium microwaveable popcorn bag papers are designed to offer food packaging firms functionality, appearance and sustainability advantages. According to the manufacturer, the papers offer a high degree of oil/grease resistance, thanks to fibers refined to create a functional barrier prior to additional barrier treatments. The papers also are said to be highly char resistant, an especially important consideration for single-serve bags, which generate heat more quickly due to their smaller size. The papers also can be printed flexo; according to the manufacturer, they offer a high degree of ink holdout, helping to eliminate bleed through that can build up during processing. They can be FSC certified.
