Advanced Hydrophobic Solution for Paper/Packaging

MCA, Inc., an international supplier of sustainable solutions for the packaging industry, is introducing Rhinöx Paper PR61-UC (into the U.S. market and other countries) a highly advanced hydrophobic, aqueous solution formulated with nanoparticle technology engineered to reduce moisture and water absorption and maintain the mechanical strength of the cellulose fibers of paper: carton, cardboard, packaging.

The hydrophobicity and strength originate from the chemical bond between the nanoparticles and the paper fibers.  This bond makes it ideal to utilize Rhinöx in packaging in conditions of high humidity and/or low temperature (refrigeration) – food, soda, alcohol, etc.

Further, Rhinöx is an excellent option for the use in paper bags/packaging used for building materials (cement, plaster, stucco); agriculture products (feed, fertilizers, seeds); chemicals (resins, pigments); dry food items (dairy, flour, rice, sugar, spices, pet food) or for overseas packaging where humidity and temperature can greatly affect packaging performance.

Rhinöx Paper presents the following properties, benefits and applications:

Properties

  • Increases resistance to moisture and water penetration of paper
  • Maintains the mechanical resistance of the cellulose fibers

Benefits

  • FDA compliant – direct/indirect food contact
  • Environmental friendly; sustainable
  • Allows printing and gluing with standard products
  • Will not crack after application
  • Will not form a surface film
  • Allows for 100% recycling of paper (repulpable)
  • Make colors of printing inks more vivid
  • Does not contain heavy metals

Applications

  • Food, beverage, specialty and general packaging
  • Packaging for low temperature (refrigeration)
  • Packaging for locations of high humidity; overseas packaging
  • Paper bag packaging/manufacturing
  • Carton manufacturing/packaging
  • Cardboard manufacturing/packaging

FDA Regulations Compliance

  • 21 CFR 175.105 (Adhesives)
  • 21 CFR 176.170 (Aqueous & Fatty Foods)
  • 21 CFR 176.180 (Dry Food)
  • 21 CFR 178.3290 (Packaging Closure Area)
  • 21 CFR 181.22 (Food Packaging)
  • 21 CFR 181.30 (Food Packaging)

Rhinöx reduces the possibility of damage and waste due to moisture and water absorption by maintaining the integrity of the product packaging.

*Rhinöx Paper PR61-UC (Ultra Concentrate) is a highly advanced, aqueous solution which is mixed with tap water: Ratio 3% Rhinöx to 97% water.
