Mondi has developed Aegis Paper, a new recyclable functional barrier paper range designed with protection in mind and fully integrated across the company’s value chain.
Mondi’s new range reduces the amount of plastic used by replacing it with a renewable resource that has specific mechanical properties, such as puncture resistance, flexibility, printability, and barrier protection. The coating technologies applied to these papers create custom barriers against grease and water vapor and ensure sealability.
AegisPapers are suitable for numerous packaging applications within the dry food, frozen food, pet food, confectionery, secondary packaging, toy, e-commerce, flower packaging, and DIY industries.
‘Sustainability is at the center of our strategy, and I am pleased that this continues to be a focus for our customers,’ commented Peter Orisich, CEO of flexible packaging and engineered materials at Mondi. ‘Thanks to combining Mondi’s know-how of papermaking, coating, printing, converting, pouch and bag making alongside our expertise in selected end-uses for consumers, we make “paper where possible, plastic when useful,” a reality. This launch is a breakthrough for the next generation of sustainable packaging.’
