Barrier Coatings For Consumer Products
Our line of RHOBARR™ Barrier Coatings for paper-based packaging extends beyond oil and grease (OGR) protection to also effectively resist mineral oils, fatty acids, and a variety of other materials often present in consumer products. Our family of RHOBARR™ Barrier Coatings has been expertly designed to provide protection to paperboard boxes that house these consumer products, such as dryer sheets, bar soaps, and more.
RHOBARR™ Barrier Coatings from Dow benefit from excellent heat sealability and enable glue and print application. Their thin-layer functionality and compatibility with other materials allow a range of performance to be achieved through multi-layer packaging constructions. RHOBARR™ Barrier Coatings also provide enhanced repulpability, helping make paper packaging with barrier coatings part of the circular economy.
Dryer Sheet Boxes
RHOBARR™ Barrier Coatings from Dow can serve as effective barriers against fatty acid-like materials in dryer sheets. RHOBARR™ Barrier Coatings offerings can be selected for glueable and printable applications, meaning the paperboard-based packaging can be easily branded for any dryer sheet make. Thin coating layers also provide enhanced repulpability for wider recycling opportunities.
Bar Soap Packaging
Cleaning products are an essential part of the daily lives of consumers, and it is important that their packaging maintains an appealing appearance and also offers protection to the product. RHOBARR™ Barrier Coatings for paper-based soap packaging provides resistance to the surfactants present in cleaning products, allowing a single coating that delivers both barrier and heat seal performance.
Functional Barrier Construction
Today’s consumer products rely on traditional approaches to packaging design with a fixed set of construction options. The versatility and breadth of RHOBARR™ Barrier Coatings allows them to be used in single layer applications but can unlock endless possibilities when combined through multiple layered constructions. RHOBARR™ Barrier Coatings are not only resistant to a multitude of substances, but they can also provide a foundational or protective layer to other coatings to support the broadest range of function.
