Oil and Grease Resistance for Food-Contact Packaging

Food packaging, much like many other things in today’s world, sees a continued push and need for sustainable, eco-friendly products. GPC and the paper industry are constantly adapting to meet these demands. Fortunately, GPC has a long history of developing new and unique products to meet the needs of our customers, specifically when it comes to food-contact packaging.

A common requirement for food-contact packaging is a level of oil and grease resistance (OGR). For many years, OGR has been achieved with the use of fluorocarbons (FC), also known as polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). Regulations are ever-changing and continue to become more stringent with the growing number of consumer and environmental concerns. Current regulations and the uncertainty of future regulations regarding PFAS have led to an increase in interest of FC-free products. This is where GPC can help. GPC has extensive knowledge using bio-based materials that can help you develop your next generation of products.

Depending on your OGR needs, GPC offers choices of molecular weights, viscosities and filming characteristics. Notably, our K-Series COATMASTER® propylated starches are premium modified corn starches that are used in binding and coating applications. They are the ultimate product for surface applications, providing superior film strength and product quality on the size-press and calendar stack. These starches are perfectly compatible with all coating colors, minerals, additives and latexes.

When using GPC’s starches, you can feel confident knowing that your products will support the following attributes and initiatives:

  • Biodegradable
  • Re-pulpable
  • Recyclable
  • Compostable
  • Fluorocarbon-Free (FC-Free)
Switching to a Fluorocarbon-Free option is an excellent way to become more sustainable now and well into the future.

Please contact GPC for more information.
