AGC’s new FibraLAST® non-fluorinated sizing additives protect paper products from both water and food oils. This new barrier technology 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 ºC 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 or process is required.
FibraLAST non-fluorinated barrier technology is not currently available in all regions. FibraLAST grades for textiles and non-woven products are currently in development.
