Ahlstrom advances base paper technology to develop replacement for plastic and film packaging

HELSINKI, November 30, 2022-

Through continued innovation and collaboration with brand owners, Ahlstrom has identified specific technology enabling highly developed base papers - the key to solving the barrier requirements in flexible packaging, while still utilizing the inherent end-of-life benefits that paper has to offer. Ahlstrom has the unique set of capabilities and wide breadth of technical applications to allow them to develop some of the strongest performing base papers available. 

"Paper substrates can be engineered to exploit the inherent value of cellulose itself," explained Zack Leimkuehler, Vice President Business Development for Ahlstrom. "Cellulose by itself is a very good barrier, and highly developed base papers can deliver barrier properties."
