Water Resistant Coating withstands elements.

July 29, 2014

By imparting water repellency, HydraBan® 430 helps maintain structural integrity of paper and corrugated shipping boxes while they are in service or in transit. This, in turn, helps protect container contents. FDA-compliant, water-based coating, effective for applications where exposure to environmental conditions – cold, heat, humidity, moisture – is unavoidable, is repulpable, printable, and gluable. It can be run with or without dilution and applied off-line, in-line, or via flexo. Read More
