Archroma Additive Is FDA Approved for Food Packaging


REINACH, SWITZERLAND | Archroma, a global supplier of specialty chemicals, announces FDA approval for the use of its new Cartaguard KST in the manufacture of paper and board for food packaging.

The additive, said to be resistant to oil, grease, and water, is also compliant with the recommendations of the German BfR XXXVI for use as a surface refining and coating agent in paper and board intended for food contact applications.

Performance properties and environmental profile reportedly make it particularly suitable for use in both size press and wet end applications to produce fast food boxes and wrappers, soup cube boxes, butter wrap, and oil bottle labels. It is also said to be suitable for use in production of molded pulp plates, cups, etc., and in pet food packaging.
