Stahl, a supplier of speciality coatings for flexible substrates, has entered into an exclusive licensing agreement with sustainable high-performance barrier solutions provider Barriertec.  

This agreement grants Stahl the exclusive rights to market Barriertec’s sustainable barrier coatings, including the Barriertec and Be Repulpable labels, for the packaging industry under the Stahl brand. 

Barriertec’s solutions facilitate the application of barrier coatings on paper, enhancing the material’s resistance to grease, water, oil, and oxygen.  

These solutions promote the recycling and reusing of paper fibres in new packaging solutions. 

The sustainable barrier coating is also advantageous for food packaging manufacturers, aiding the shift towards fully recyclable paper-based packaging. 

Stahl Packaging Coatings global director Paul Grzebielucha said: “We at Stahl take our role of being a leading and responsible supplier in the food and packaging chain as a serious quest.

“We feel this partnership with Barriertec and Francois Dandenault [Barriertec CEO] helps us take a major step at saving fibres, reducing waste and making a step change improvement that allows single-coated substrates to replace difficult-to-recycle multilayer materials.” 

Dandenault said: “Based on industry needs, we have defined the technological requirements for repulpable packaging coatings. It’s essential to surround ourselves with the best, with those who share our vision, so it was only natural for us to partner with Stahl.  

“Barriertec’s technology is now part of a worldwide network offering one of the world’s most effective barrier solutions: repulpable packaging made from renewable fibres. So, take the green step, be the change! Be Repulpable!” 

The licensing agreement is part of Stahl’s ongoing strategy to enhance its packaging coatings portfolio with a focus on quality, sustainable solutions. 

In March last year, Stahl acquired ICP Industrial Solutions Group, a supplier of high-performance coatings for packaging and labelling.
