Benefits of Paper and Packaging Wax
Coating various paper products in wax ensures they stay moisture-resistant and durable — even when coming into contact with water or grease. A thin layer of wax helps provide confidence when you need to protect freshness or ship fragile items.
Wax also offers other advantages for paper applications. It is a practical way to create a barrier on all kinds of paper used in the packaging and corrugated industries.
Our Paper and Packaging Waxes for Food Products
Blended Waxes’ food-grade formulations are safe for use on food wrappers, cardboard boxes and more. Adding wax to your food products’ packaging preserves freshness and offers other advantages.
Provide Moisture Control
Food products need precisely the right amount of moisture to retain their safety, taste and texture. Wax-coated packaging is an effective moisture barrier that helps ensure fresher, tastier foods. Our food-grade blends promote internal moisture retention while deterring excess sogginess.
If your business packages food products with high fat or oil content, you need solutions capable of resisting excess grease. Enhancing your wrappers or containers with wax helps. Coated packaging ensures your goods look attractive and your custom-designed packaging stays intact.
Guard Against Vapors
Like moisture, gases and vapors that permeate your packaging can adversely affect your products’ integrity. They can cause over-ripening, faster decay, bad odors and poor taste. Wax creates an effective barrier against these contaminants to help you deliver fresh, safe and tasty food products.
Opening a wrapper to find the food sticking to the packaging can be a frustrating experience for a hungry customer. Wax paper wrappers help prevent food from clinging, promoting a more enjoyable eating experience.
Additional Wax Blends Available
Our wax for paper packaging and corrugated blends contain a mixture of paraffin waxes, polymers and special additives. Regardless of your product, this wax delivers benefits like moisture and scuff resistance while maintaining flexibility.
We also carry specially created waxes, including:
- Box coating waxes with strong moisture and grease resistance.
- Laminating waxes featuring a high melting point for laminating applications.
- Polybend coating waxes with a thicker texture for grease and heat resistance.
- Fully refined cascading wax and dry waxes with two different melting points.
These waxes add protection and keep your products fresh during storage and transport.
Different Applications of Wax in the Packaging Industry
Depending on the packaging you are working with, you can apply wax in three different ways:
- Laminating — applying the wax between the packaging material.
- Coating — placing the wax on the surface of the material.
- Impregnating — putting the wax into the packaging material.
Since you can use any of these methods, packaging waxes are ideal for many applications. Common products for wax application include:
- Flexible packaging
- Corrugated containers
- Paper cups
- Folding cartons
