Discover the innovative packaging featuring high barrier, compostability, and paper exterior

At the heart of the new barrier packaging is SAES Coated Films’ BXM product, a heat-sealable compostable film coated and metallized using SAES’ proprietary Coathink ™ technology. The film is used as the inner layer and it is laminated with a compostable paper outer layer, which gives the consumer the distinctive touch and feel of a natural material.

Thanks to Coathink™, the packaging has exceptional barrier properties that meet the requirements for the protection of long shelf-life food products.

The barrier film performance is attained with OTR values (23 °C, 0% RH) below 0,5 cc/sqm.24h and WVTR (22°C, 50% RH) below 0,5 g/sqm.24h.

The packaging has received UNI EN13432 certification for industrial compostability, so that after use it can be safely and conveniently recovered in the bio-waste bin.
