Paper & Cardboard – Difficult Surfaces

Our invisible SiO2 Paper PROTECT performs better than any solvent or water-based product used in the paper industry today.

Water repellency for paper products is generally derived from solvent based coatings as the cellulose fiber doesn’t react to solvents. Solvent coatings can be effective, but they can be toxic and can’t be used for many paper products i.e. food containers. A safe alternative coating that can resist water absorption, is needed.

SiO2 International Inc. has found the answer. We’ve developed a superior water-based technology that is undetectable, will keep paper dry, safe to use and distortion free. Our invisible SiO2 Paper PROTECT performs better than any solvent or water-based product used for the paper industry today. Our coating can be used in food packaging, health care, cosmetic and many other industries that requires a safe alternative to older solvent based coatings.
