Heat seal coatings for reliable and user-friendly packaging

Packaging coatings for food and pharmaceutical products must guarantee an optimally balanced combination of appearance, user-friendliness, processability and safety for consumers and the environment. Topics such as 'direct food contact' and 'conformity with food regulations' are top priorities for us when developing a safe product solution. Our ACTEseal® portfolio includes a wide range of heat seal coatings that are available worldwide and can be tailored precisely to the product and our customers' equipment.

How heat seal coatings can contribute to the sustainability of packaging

Increasing recycling rates and the resulting different product qualities of recyclates face packaging manufacturers with new challenges. Our ACTEseal® products are also suitable for sealing partners made of recycled aluminum and plastic recyclate and are thus able to compensate for variations in the quality of sealing partners. In this way, our products can help increase the use of circular materials in packaging and thus make a valuable contribution to greater sustainability.
