Henkel MiraFoil® Coating Named Among Top 10 Products

Henkel Corp.’s MiraFoil® coating has been named among the top 10 products worldwide by Material ConneXion in its annual MEDIUM Award for Material of the Year. With the award of an honorable mention, global materials consultancy Material ConneXion recognizes MiraFoil coatings as an exemplary material innovation that will change product packaging and design.

A fully recyclable, UV-curable alternative to foil board laminating and hot foil stamping that is equally brilliant to foil, MiraFoil coatings can be applied to precise areas, reducing waste and saving time and energy through process efficiencies.

“Metallic effects are an eye-catching way to distinguish products in highly competitive markets,” said Kris Getty, Henkel’s market segment director for Paper Converting. “But while other techniques make the packaging material unrecyclable, MiraFoil is a VOC-free coating that can be removed through the de-inking process-so the paper or polymer packaging material can be recycled.”

Other benefits of the coatings include elimination of off-line lamination or foil stamping, elimination of warehousing and lead-time required with laminated foil stocks, excellent press stability, and easy application.
