MICHELMAN: Water-Resistant Coating

August 8, 2014

This company recently introduced HydraBan® 430, reportedly a highly water resistant coating for paper and corrugated, at the recent ACCCSA 2014 convention in Cartagena, Colombia. Because it reportedly imparts a high degree of water repellency, the new coating can help maintain the structural integrity of corrugated shipping boxes while they are in service or in transit, while also protecting the contents of the container.

The coating is particularly effective for applications where exposure to environmental conditions such as cold, heat, humidity and moisture is unavoidable. Typical applications include corrugated containers used for perishables, consumer goods and building products.
