Zanders, a globally active German specialist for labelling and packaging solutions with headquarters in Bergisch Gladbach, is launching the new oil and grease resistant (OGR) food contact paper Zanbarrier OGR. In the future, Zanbarrier will also be available in other barrier variations, rounding off the range of flexible packaging paper.
Zanders has developed the flexible food contact paper Zanbarrier OGR specially for products containing fat, primarily in the food domain, and will be presenting it for the first time at the FachPack 2016 trade fair. Zanbarrier OGR is uncoated, resistant to oil and grease and moisture-proof. It is suitable for fast food packaging such as kebab or French fry wrappers, for butter wrapping, as release paper for fatty and moist food products or as lamination on pizza and bakery boxes, for example.
In addition to the OGR variant, Zanders is working on further barriers, including those dedicated for use with mineral oils, water and steam, or as aroma protection. "Our decades of experience in the use of high-performance technologies for surface treatments has enabled us to test and implement all different kinds of barriers", explains Jakob Jonsson, Sales Director at Zanders. "We can provide our customers with flexible and targeted solutions for their individual needs. With our high-performance barrier papers, we offer an environmentally friendly alternative to plastic packaging."
With its barrier papers, Zanders rounds off the product range of flexible packaging paper which also includes the lightly waterproof, machine-smoothed natural paper Zankraft MF in matte, silk and gloss versions as well as the Zanflex one-side coated qualities with a shiny surface. As fresh fibre papers, all packaging papers stand out due to their high level of purity and safety, thus making them ideally suited for the packaging of food such as cereals, sugar, flour, baking and confectionery goods, as well as soup packets or individually wrapped tea bags.
Furthermore, they can be successfully deployed as packaging for pet food or tobacco goods, as gift wrapping paper, for shopping bags or for laminations. In common with the entire product portfolio, all flexible packaging papers from Zanders are sustainably produced and are FSC-certified. They are also recyclable and compostable.
