Michelman's New HydraBan 430 Coating for Corrugated Withstands the Elements; Helps Maintain Product Integrity
Press release date: July 28, 2014
Because it imparts a high degree of water repellency, the new coating helps maintain the structural integrity of corrugated shipping boxes while they are in service or in transit, while also protecting the contents of the container. HydraBan 430 is particularly effective for applications where exposure to environmental conditions such as cold, heat, humidity and moisture is unavoidable. Typical applications includes corrugated containers used for perishables, consumer goods and building products.
Hydraban 430 is a versatile and economic water-based coating that is FDA compliant, repulpable, printable and gluable. It is easy-to-run with or without dilution and can be applied off-line before the corrugation process or in-line on the corrugator, from the wet or dry end, with a rod or blade coater. It can also be applied via flexo.
