Smart Planet Technologies: Eco-friendly carton barrier
EarthBoard®, a carton barrier coating from Smart Planet Technologies, has barrier properties for oils, fatty acids, and moisture, making it an eco-smart solution for the packaging of food products in folding cartons.
Earthboard‘s mineral-based layer is FDA compliant for direct contact with food. Reduces the use of polyethylene in barrier coatings for food packaging. Its mineral-based layer upgrades the brightness and printability of recycled fibers to be comparable to virgin fiberboards. Improves recyclability because its use reduces the amount of plastic going into the paper recycling stream.
