Decovery® SP-6000 XP

All the performance, with less of the oil – and repulpable

Decovery® SP-6000XP is a barrier coating resin, which is an alternative to PE and PFAS based solution. This high-performance 29% bio-based acrylic is designed for barrier coatings for paper substrates. It works very well with all existing application methods, especially flexo and gravure. Decovery® SP-6000XP resin provides water barrier (Cobb) combined with highly flexibility. It performs well in flexible paper substrates in food and non-food applications such as sandwich wraps, tea envelope, folding board boxes and other take away packaging.
