Coated barrier films

Interfilm Holdings Inc. has signed a distributor agreement with NanoPack Inc. NanoPack’s patented NanoSeal™ substantially enhances oxygen and aroma barriers and is adaptable to a variety of substrates and printing methods, while delivering multiple environmental advantages. The barrier films can substantially reduce the cost of traditional barrier packaging structures, according to the co. Production advantages for the barrier films include performance and economic improvements. In addition, their environmental benefits consist of improved gas barrier properties and as much as 90 percent less material usage. The barrier films also eliminate the chlorine inherent in barrier coatings, thereby solving related processing and disposal hazards, the co. adds. The coatings can be reground for reuse and are biodegradable.
