Our Coatings with
Your Paper Specs equals a Plastic Free food packaging solution

Can you Tell the difference Between these to-go containers?

We can.  One has a plastic liner to achieve grease resistance, and the other one is a Terram Lab Plastic Free solution using our proprietary coating technology.  Our coating technologies meet the EU Single Use Plastic Directive for being plastic free.  Finally, a solution free of plastics and free of PFAS.

Outstanding Performance with coatings applied directly to paper substrates

Our coatings work by using a two-part system that creates an Interpenetrating Polymer Network (IPN) with an Interlaced copolymer system to deliver exceptional OGR and oxygen transmission (OTR) performance in a water based, PFAS free, acrylic free and plastic free formula.
