Papcoat™ - A paper surface treatment to replace single-use plastic.

Papcoat™ provides a solution to the high level of natural ecosystems’ pollution caused by the massive use of plastics and plastic polymers in the current economy across the different sectors.

Papcoat™ is a surface treatment technology for paper. Through a cellulose molecular coating, Papcoat™ provides a 100% paper solution to fully replace plastic films cost-effectively: fully biodegradable, fully compostable and fully recyclable like any normal virgin paper. This 100% inorganic and plastic-free technology gives to the paper hydrophobicity, lipophilicity, fire-resistance and other properties. Papcoat™ applications lie in primary or secondary packaging, bags, cups, and many other types of disposable.
