Enabling Solutions for Sustainable Packaging

Michelman has enabled advances in paper & film packaging sustainability since creating its first repulpable water-based coating over 50 years ago.  Their experts develop new materials and coatings with sustainability in mind, prioritizing customers’ health and safety during use and optimizing for sustainable packaging end-of-life outcomes. In addition, their water-based technology delivers critical package performance properties such as MVTR, OTR, and heat seal.

Utilizing a customer-intimate approach, they collaborate with customers and other members of the packaging supply chain to develop solutions that remove excess waste during package production and improve package functionality, utility, and performance in use.

Their Michem® Flex brand of sustainable, water-based technologies includes primers, barrier coatings, topcoats, and specialized heat seal coatings optimized for flexible packaging. Designed to work together but flexible enough to work independently with existing coating systems, these solutions create superior packaging for food, medical, and consumer goods applications.

PFAS-free, recyclable, and repulpable, Michelman’s VaporCoat®, HydraBan®, and Michem® Coat paper coating solutions can light-weight packaging by providing
an alternative to wax and film lamination techniques. Additionally, specific Michem® Coat and Hydraban® solutions have recently complied with the specifications established by the American Society for Testing and Materials standards ASTM D6400 and D6868 per the terms and conditions of the Biodegradable Products Institute’s (BPI) certification program for compostable products.

Michelman maintains production facilities in North America, Europe and Asia, product development and technical service centers globally, and a worldwide team of expert business development personnel.
