Sun Chemical to Showcase SunBar® (Aerobloc) Oxygen Barrier Coatings during the Global Pouch Forum 2017

PARSIPPANY, N.J., U.S.A. – May 11, 2017 – Sun Chemical will showcase its SunBar® (Aerobloc) oxygen barrier coatings during the Global Pouch Forum from June 14-16th in Miami, Fla.

Visitors of table top #B33 will learn how Sun Chemical’s SunBar (Aerobloc) oxygen barrier coatings offers converters with cost effective, durable, and sustainable films that support lighter weight packaging trends by creating a homogenous, pinhole-free, and flexible gas barrier layer that can be easily overprinted with inks and laminated to a variety of secondary films.

A cost-effective, compostable, chlorine- and metal-free alternative that allows for lighter-weight packaging, SunBar (Aerobloc) oxygen barrier coatings offer a reduced carbon footprint and easy application with few changes to current equipment.

Through its partnership with acpo, ltd., Sun Chemical can also deliver SunBar (Aerobloc) pre-coated films to converters, allowing customers to have alternative barrier films at an economical price with improved barrier protection without needing to make capital investments in a coating unit. SunBar (Aerobloc) coated films from acpo are an excellent choice for clear high barrier flexible packaging structures and also for ultra-high barrier metalized film structures.

Held at the Intercontinental Hotel in Miami, Fla., the Global Pouch Forum will cover upcoming trends and themes affecting pouch formats in packaging and their growth prospects worldwide. For more information about Sun Chemical and its product offerings, visit table top #B33 or www.sunchemical.com.
