Coatings to produce PE Free Paper Cups

Globally, eating and drinking on-the-go is a key trend that will increasingly create opportunities for the food and drink packaging industry over the coming years. The paper cup market for cold and hot beverages specifically is growing 3 to 4% worldwide annually. Traditionally these cups are made of paper with high quality virgin fiber, laminated with PE to ensure full resistance to penetration of the beverage into the paper. The plastic layer is attached so tightly that those cups need special facilities to separate the linings, with almost all recycling plants rejecting the cups and sending them straight to landfill or to incineration plants.

TopChim developed a coating system that tackles two major inconveniences in the life cycle of the paper cup. The coating system replaces entirely the PE lining and is applied during the production process of the paper, eliminating a production process in the production of cup stock. Most important though, the fact that the coated cup is entirely recyclable, gives the high quality fiber of the cup a second life as strong recycled fiber.
