Why Barrier Coated Paper is the Future

Barrier-coated paper has emerged as a promising substitute for plastic packaging, which has long dominated the market but poses severe environmental challenges. Unlike traditional plastics, barrier-coated paper maintains the sustainability of paper while enhancing its functionality. This innovative material provides essential barrier properties against oxygen, moisture, and grease, making it ideal for a wide range of packaging applications, especially in the food industry.

Sustainable Coating Solutions

For barrier-coated paper to truly replace plastic, the coatings used must also be sustainable. At SHitla Papers, we employ rational design in our coating processes, often involving multiphase systems that enhance performance without compromising the environment. Our coatings are designed to be biodegradable, compostable, or recyclable, aligning with global efforts to shift towards a circular economy. This approach not only reduces the carbon footprint but also ensures that the packaging material does not contribute to landfill overflow or environmental pollution.

Key Attributes of Barrier Coated Paper

  • Oxygen Barrier: Protects contents from oxidation, preserving freshness and quality.
  • Moisture Barrier: Prevents moisture ingress, ensuring product integrity.
  • Grease Barrier: Suitable for oily or greasy food products, maintaining cleanliness and durability.

Meeting Market and Environmental Needs

The global packaging market is increasingly leaning towards sustainable solutions due to heightened environmental concerns and consumer demand for eco-friendly products. Single-use plastics, largely petroleum-based, contribute significantly to environmental degradation. Transitioning to paper packaging with sustainable coatings helps mitigate this impact, supporting the move to a circular economy where materials are reused and recycled, rather than discarded.

Our barrier-coated papers are meticulously designed to meet the stringent requirements of modern packaging, offering robust protection while being environmentally sustainable. We use state-of-the-art techniques like extrusion coating, size press coating, and bar coating to ensure high-quality finishes and effective barrier properties.


As we look towards a future where sustainability is non-negotiable, barrier-coated paper stands out as a revolutionary development in the paper industry.
