Michelman presents "Michem Flex HS268”, a coating, which is formulated for use on multilayer flexible food packaging used in direct and indirect food contact applications. It is compliant with many EU and FDA food contact regulations.

Developed for packers and substrate producers

The coating is beneficial for packers, converters and substrate producers that coat the packaging material. Its high solid content combined with low viscosity leads to reduced transportation costs, less drying time and reduced energy costs. The coating also offers high blocking resistance and can be further formulated with slip additives, such as "Michem Lube 160 RPH”, to achieve a low coefficient of friction without losing bond strength.

Broad sealing temperature range

The coating is water resistant and can be applied to paper, metal foil or metalised surfaces, and various matte, white or cavitated films, in conjunction with a primer like "Michem Flex P2300”. It bonds well to various inks on printed films, and has a broad sealing temperature range. It also exhibits good hot tack for vertical form fill use in combination with the right primer or ink.
