Coatings Enhance Packaging, Engage the Senses, Increase Functionality, Create Impact

The demands placed upon packaging today far exceed anything that existed just a few decades ago. In addition to appealing graphics and colors that help packaging pop off the shelf, packaging may need to meet a variety of requirements including: regulatory standards to keep food and consumers safe, less weight, extended shelf life, recyclability, consumer access to more complex information, and more.

To provide solutions to these needs, Sun Chemical has developed a full lineup of coatings for all types of packaging to enhance, reinforce and reduce packaging materials. Although not readily visible and seldom recognized by consumers, coatings bring unique and economical attributes which allow today’s packaging to perform as well as it does.
