At two trade events in October, Henkel and Siegwerk will showcase the results of the companies’ collaboration on an oxygen barrier coating for food packaging. The collaboration resulted in an industrially validated oxygen barrier coating that enables mono-material flexible packaging for dry food products – opening up the potential to accelerate the transition to a circular economy. Recently, the product was recognized by the Association of Plastics Recyclers (APR) Critical Guidance to be compatible with recycling.

Representatives from Henkel and Siegwerk met at K-Fair in 2019, and agreed to co-develop an oxygen barrier coating for more recyclable food packaging. Now, they are preparing to launch that solution in North America and Europe, and will introduce it at two trade fairs: K-Fair in Düsseldorf, Germany, from October 20-24, and Pack Expo in Chicago, Illinois, from October 23-26, booth number S-2172.
