New range of ACTGreen® Barrier Coatings set to reinvent recyclability in packaging


ACTEGA, manufacturer of specialty coatings, inks, adhesives and sealing compounds with a focus on the packaging and printing industry, today announces the launch of its latest offering, ACTGreen® Barrier Coatings – a range of advanced water-based barrier coatings and next generation thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) dispersions – representing a huge step forward in packaging sustainability.

With both fill products and packaging needing to be mutually protected from the effects of oils, fats, water and external substances, plastic polyethylene (PE) laminates have traditionally been adopted across the packaging industry – despite the complex, costly and increasingly scrutinized recycling process, which involves using specialist technologies to separate the plastic from the cardboard substrate.
