FibraLAST® Non-Fluorinated Barrier Technology

Non-fluorinated sizing additives protect paper products from both water and food oils.

Non-fluorinated sizing additives.

AGC’s FibraLAST®  non-fluorinated sizing additives protect paper products from both water and food oils.  This new barrier technology is made with natural materials that are safe, while maintaining its effectiveness as a repellent.  It is ideal for molded, formed fiber and cardboard products such as fast-casual bowls, plates, containers, and pizza boxes.  FibraLAST grades are unique in that they provide both water and oil protection from a single wet-end additive.

They prevent the bleed-through of high-temperature liquids and food oils through the molded fiber, achieving 80 °C water and oil holdout performance.   They are FDA compliant for contact with food of all types.

Since they are applied to the pulp before fabrication, no additional equipment of process is required. They can be used as an alternative to traditional oil sizing products, which are spray-coated on products after fabrication.  Pulp and paper mills can cost-effectively enhance their products with this barrier technology as a single wet-end additive.

FibraLASTgrades for nonwoven and textile applications offer a variety of options from enhancing water repellency to imparting hydrophilicity to textile products. Custom solutions for textile challenges may be available.
