Sappi showcases environmentally friendly and premium packaging solutions and innovation in barrier paper

Paper has long been a popular recyclable mono-material. Accordingly, one of the market leaders in the field, Sappi, has expanded its portfolio of barrier papers and is now offering businesses a vast range of innovative packaging paper solutions.

A 91 g/m² version was recently added to the high-barrier paper range, which opens up additional applications for manufacturers of branded goods. All high-barrier papers from Sappi ensure that the product quality of foods and other goods is preserved. They feature barriers against oxygen, water vapor, grease and mineral oil. The solutions of the market leader offer even more – outstanding print results, a wide range of finishing options, complete recyclability and integrated heat sealability.

“Our considerable expertise in Functional Paper Packaging is also evident in low grammages with an integrated mineral oil and grease barrier,” said René Köhler, head of business development Packaging and Speciality Papers at Sappi Europe. “These light papers with grammages of 75 g/m² and higher are particularly popular.”

They prevent any mineral oil from getting into the final product, which keeps products such as rice, cereals, tea and chocolate free of MOSH and MOAH residue. Sappi Guard MS also offers impressive heat sealability, resulting in a reduction in production steps as additional sealing media are not required. Sappi offers these packaging papers in several other grammages, which are ideally suited to primary and secondary packaging.

Sappi is one of more than 70 exhibitors at this year’s Plastic Free World Conference & Expo, taking place in Cologne on 16-17 June 2020.

Plastic Free World Conference & Expo 2020 will take place at Cologne Messe, Germany, on Tuesday 16 June and Wednesday 17 June. To register for this highly focused, solutions-driven event, please click here. For sponsorship and exhibition opportunities, please email
