Paper and Packaging

Superior waxes for packaging applications

Paper and paper board are superior materials for packaging applications. This is because they are more resilient and economically viable than glass, plastics or metal. However, they exhibit only limited barrier properties for moisture, water, gases and odour. To enhance These properties paper products can be coated with waxes or laminated to plastic films or foils. Sasol Performance Chemicals is able to offer a wide range of paraffin, microcrystalline and Fischer-Tropsch waxes suited to impregnate, laminate or coat different paper stocks.

 

Our wax coatings for food packaging conform to the rules and regulations set out by both the „Bundesinstitut für Risikobewertung“ (BfR) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
