Covestro barrier coating resins help us to create a better environment
The performance you need and it is kinder to the environment
Making your recycling targets easier to achieveAs the world moves towards packaging that’s kinder to the planet, we’re all looking for more sustainable alternatives, especially when it comes to packaging like PE laminates, which are often difficult to recycle. When you use our dispersible barrier coatings, stock repulping and recycling requires very low levels of additional processing, if at all. In turn, this increases the value of the recycling waste input stream and as well as generates environmental benefits when the final packaging comes to be disposed of.
No need to sacrifice performanceOur resins can be applied at the same stage of your dispersion coating process, using existing machinery, and your own tried and tested processes. You will experience exceedingly low levels of loss in throughput, if at all. More importantly, you can be sure that Covestro barrier coatings are capable of matching or exceeding traditional coatings in terms of resistance to water, grease, oil, moisture – Water Vapor transmission rate (WVTR) and Cobb tested – as well as heat, and they are a great fit for meeting heat sealing and reworkability requirements. They give you everything you expect of a performance product, but with the reassurance - of knowing your products are helping protect the environment.
Get to market faster with fewer test cyclesCreating recyclable coatings does not need to be expensive or time consuming. At Covestro we have the knowhow and products to help you reduce the number of components used during your formulation processes, while maintaining performance throughout.
Created to a very high standard and backed by expert advice.From beginning to end, we can help make starting-up faster. At the same time, we can help you to reduce the production waste and scrap numerous costs that would come with using PE laminates. Our global scale and reach mean, we are well-placed to keep you up-to-date with the latest innovations, trends, and market news. You can be market-ready for some of the latest products, often before they are launched.

Foods that are sensitive to odor issues will require the correct packaging. If these foods are not suitably packaged, they can represent an economic and health challenge to the manufacturer.
Our resins are more than a match for LDPE
In both factory and field tests, products created using our Covestro resins have shown to be as effective as those made with traditional, less eco-friendly materials. Our stringent quality control procedures ensure that all our products offer a high level of performance.
