The flexible packaging industry faces a number of challenges. Functional coatings are gaining traction as viable solutions for packaging designers to fulfill such increasingly demanding requirements. To be successful in the market, coatings must provide multiple functionalities simultaneously. Shelf-life retention and improvements with thinner and more sustainable packaging solutions are a focal point of innovation. This paper presents innovative combinations of technologies, which provide easy to use and robust barrier solutions with highest levels of performance.
