Protective and Heat seal coatings, ACTEcoat® and ACTEseal®

For chocolate wrappers

Aluminum foils offers the optimum barrier properties to protect chocolate from light and moisture and to ensure its unmistakable taste, familiar smell and fine, glossy appearance.

Once these protective functions have been ensured, the packaging has another extremely important task. It must convince with its high-quality appearance, take brand owner designs into account and ensure attention at the point of sale.

ACTEGA's ACTEcoat® protective seal and ACTEseal® heat seal coatings ensures either atractive finishes and  stability during transportation and storage. Furthermore, they are fully in accordance with food regulations.

FOOD SAFETY

Reliable protection of consumer health is our top priority. When it comes to applications with (direct) food contact, we scrupulously test the safety of the raw materials used and, as a matter of principle, only use raw materials that have been proven to comply with food regulations (such as FDA and EU regulations).  Our PVC-free heat-seal lacquers enable safe food packaging and thus protect the contents and the health of our consumers.
