BASF and Omya are working jointly on coater-ready barrier solutions for paper and cardboard packaging. This cooperation is their response to the growing demand for these products. In future, this will provide a service for customers who for capacity and plant technology reasons cannot prepare formulations and mixtures independently. Coater-ready solutions consist mainly of pigments, additives and functional barrier dispersions.

BASF's and Omya's contributions to the partnership complement each other ideally. BASF supplies barrier dispersions, while Omya provides the pigments and experience to manufacture these products and produces them in its own facilities. Thanks to their technical know-how and knowledge of the market, the two partners can guarantee an optimal solution for the paper and cardboard packaging manufacturers. Marketing will be carried out through the sales channels of Omya in Europe. A first commercial product will be available in Q1.

Demand for barrier materials increases
The upcoming Mineral Oil Ordinance of the German Federal Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Consumer Protection (BMELV) is increasing interest in water-based barrier solutions for paper and cardboard packaging. BASF's comprehensive portfolio of barrier solutions includes polymers applied by extrusion, coextrusion or lamination at converters (e.g. ecovio® PS 1606 or Ultramid®) as well as water-based dispersions used in paper finishing on coating machines and in printing processes (Epotal®). Through this cooperation, BASF's portfolio is supplemented by this new coater-ready barrier formulation.

Together with packaging manufacturers, BASF has developed various barrier solutions which are now already being successfully used in the market for various packaging applications.
