Barrier coatings are functional coatings, which reduce the flow of a fluid. Barrier coating is applied to a paper, paperboard, or corrugated board substrates in order to facilitate effective resistance to water, grease, moisture, and gases under a wide range of conditions and temperature. Barrier coating requires low coat weight as compared to other coatings and it is more effective when multiple layers of barrier coating are applied on the substrate. Barrier coating is the main element in the concerned efforts taken by the packagers to optimize protection, odor control, and prolongation of the product shelf life. Paper is generally coated with organic liquids such as Polyvinylidene Chloride (PVdC), Ethylene Vinyl Alcohol (EVOH), Acrylics, Polyvinyl Alcohol (PVOH), silicon oxide, aluminum oxide, polyethylene, polyolefin and inorganic sol-gel, and biodegradable polymers such as Polyethylene Glycol (PEG). It can be easily dispersed in water and offers self-crosslinking, edge wicking resistance, and resistance to external media. It can be customized as per requirement, as it helps control humidity control, sealing properties,...
