Barrier Coatings For Quick Serve Packaging
Dow’s innovative RHOBARR™ Barrier Coatings have been designed to meet the increasing demands of quick serve food and beverage containers. With a range of coatings to provide resistance against oil and grease as well as hot liquids, our RHOBARR™ materials can serve as alternatives to PFAS-containing or extrusion-coated barrier options. These ultra-thin coatings make quick serve products easier to recycle and can reduce overall product weight.
Gone are the days of feeling guilty about using takeaway coffee cups. Our RHOBARR™ Barrier Dispersions create a liquid barrier that effectively protects against leaking, a must for hot and cold drinks everywhere, while still allowing products to be recycled due to the thin barrier layer. This innovative technology was also created to use 70% less raw material than incumbent products, reducing the overall environmental footprint of the packaging.
Sandwich & Burger Wraps
Thanks to our innovative technology, an ultra-thin coating of our RHOBARR™ Barrier Coatings is all you need to ensure your food wraps provide the necessary protection against oils and fatty acids, meaning you can maintain flexibility without compromising on performance. With this solution, sandwiches and burgers are well protected from outside elements, and no oil, grease, or fats will leak through the wrap.
An unfortunate side effect of most take-out meals that are delivered in paper or cardboard containers, is that the oil and grease from the food leaks into the packaging, making it unrecyclable. Our ultra-thin, ultra-effective, RHOBARR™ Barrier Coatings have been engineered to provide the same barrier performance you’re used to, whilst also being better for the planet. They provide an effective oil and grease, and moisture barrier that meets the demands of hot and cold takeout food items, while the ultra-thin coating allows for enhanced recyclability.
