Feldmuehle is set to display its mineral oil barrier papers MOB-Liner and MOB-Flex at the Packaging Innovations 2017 to be held on 05 and 06 April in Berlin, Germany.
Used to pack dry and fatty foodstuffs, the mineral oil barrier papers are claimed to offer protection against mineral oil mitigation and contamination.
The virgin fibre-barrier coated MOB-Liner paper is ideal for lamination of corrugated boards and for inner bags in folding boxes and multiwall bags.
With a combination of a mineral oil barrier and a white, glossy surface, MOB-Flex is also a virgin fibre barrier-coated paper that ensures the print quality of rotogravure and flexographic printed flexible packaging.
Both MOB papers are designed for optimal operation in packaging lines and trouble-free adhesion with hot and cold glues.
In addition, the barrier coating concept protects against mineral oil migration from the surrounding primary or transit packaging.
The concept also enables the packaging to be made with renewable fibres, which is considered to be beneficial for brand owners seeking protection, brand value as well as food safety for their products.
In February, the firm had showcased its modern point of sale (POS) solutions VivaCard and VivaLiner at the Packaging Innovations 2017 held in Birmingham, UK.
While VivaCard is an SBS board featuring a high-white, matt surface designed for folding cartons, Viva Liner is a graphical topliner meant for laminating and corrugated packaging.
The products are claimed to facilitate high-quality image and graphics reproduction.
