Archroma Natural Renewable Coating Binder Paper Coatings Archroma announces that its Appretan® NTR range based on 30% renewable raw material can now be applied to impart barrier properties.

Active Content Based on Polysaccharide

Appretan® NTR, a coating binder range is based on renewable natural ingredients for applications such as tea bags, coffee filters or capsules.

About one third of Appretan® NTR’s active content is based on a polysaccharide from renewable raw materials, allowing a reduction in the use of fossil fuel-based resources without compromising on the needed performance of water, oil and grease resistance.

Paper-based packaging can offer a much more sustainable alternative if they are not lined with a plastic film which can make them unsuitable for recycling and composting. The solution is to carefully select paper coatings and barriers solutions which are fit for the purpose.
