AGC’s new FibraLAST™ fluorine-free 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.
FibraLAST additives are environmentally-friendly, renewably sourced, recyclable and repulpable.
Since they are applied to the pulp before fabrication, no additional equipment or process is required.
FibraLAST grades for textiles and non-woven products are currently in development.
