PakItGreen Inc., a newly launched barrier coatings company headquartered in Michigan, is poised to introduce a diverse range of solutions tailored for paper, paperboard, and molded fibers.

Founded by visionaries from Scops Coating Technologies and Maxim Specialty Chemicals, PakItGreen addresses the pressing need for sustainable alternatives within the packaging industry. The company aims to combat the detrimental impact of single-use plastics  by offering innovative, eco-friendly barrier coatings that cater to paper, paperboard, and molded fibers. PakItGreen aims to make significant strides in promoting sustainability and establishing a strong presence in the North American and Canadian markets.

Brand owners, converters & paper mills can leverage PakItGreen’s water-based & cost effective coatings to develop packaging structures that are compostable, biodegradable, re-pulpable, recyclable, and free from plastic and PFAS. This technology also enables them to downgauge packaging structures or switch to mono-material structures. PakItGreen coatings provide exceptional barrier properties on various substrates ensuring both functionality and sustainability.

Additionally, PakItGreen offers custom-tailored coating solutions to meet the specific requirements of customers. This personalized approach reinforces the company's commitment to addressing the diverse needs of the packaging industry.

PakItGreen will showcase coatings suited for a myriad of end applications, including paper cups, heat-sealable e-commerce mailer bags, primary and secondary packaging for perishable and durable goods, as well as industrial applications at TAPPICon 2024, April 28 to May 1, in Cleveland, Ohio.
