Skalax is a bio-based barrier material consisting of natural polysaccharides and additives in water. Skalax is applied by dispersion coating.
We offer an efficient barrier against oxygen, grease, and aroma that can prolong shelf life of sensitive food stuffs in multi-layer packaging.
Our barrier materials can also prevent the migration of volatile organic substances, such as mineral oils, that occur in recycled paper and board.
Available for delivery in IBC containers (1000 kg) or bulk.

Consumers’ requirements shift to more sustainable packaging. We work closely with paper producers and can help you with a tailor-made flexible packaging paper containing our sustainable barrier material Skalax. Different multilayer materials can be designed with a moisture barrier included if needed.
