TopScreen is a range of ecological finished barrier coating formulations, used in the production of paper or cardboard
destined for packaging with specific barrier requirements. TopScreen barrier coating solutions can be adapted to
meet additional specific customer requirements, like adjustments for machinability, glueability, coefficient of friction
TopScreen DS13 is an easily recyclable water based coating which contains a biopolymer with a monodisperse
distribution of nano-particles with a regular shape. This coating technology is developed to replace hard to recycle
wax emulsion coatings for water barriers in paper and board packaging. Paper and cardboard coated with TopScreen
DS13 is as easily repulpable as non-treated paper or cardboard. By its very nature this biopolymer has no negative
impact on the recyclability or biodegradability of the packaging.
TopScreen DS13 requires no stabilizers even with a high solid content, while viscosity remains low. Coating machines
using TopScreen DS13 can simply be rinsed with water. Furthermore, TopScreen DS13 has a higher temperature
resistance and is less sticky, which improves the handling of the treated paper and cardboard in production.
TopScreen DS13 can be used both online and offline and is approved for a wide variety of paper and board
packaging with food contact.
