Sun Chemical’s SunBar barrier coatings are designed to enable lightweighting of packaging by removing one layer of adhesive from packaging, as well as offering improved laminate flexibility. A smooth, homogenous, pinhole-free layer, SunBar coatings are easily overprinted with inks and can be laminated to a variety of secondary films. O’Boyle will elaborate on how the design of barrier coatings allows for lightweight packaging and improved laminated flexibility, while still being cost-effective, recyclable, biodegradable and press-ready with few changes to current equipment.
