Clariant Launches PFOA-Free Additive


MUTTENZ, SWITZERLAND | Clariant reports the introduction of Cartaguard KHI, said to be a high-performance, totally PFOA-free, grease-resistant additive for effective and safer grease-resistant food papers and board. Impregnating agent Cartaguard KHI reportedly is easy to apply and does not affect the printing or adhesive properties of paper

Product is based on C3 technology, company’s patented fluorinated chemistry that prevents it from breaking down to form PFOA. It supports the trend toward more eco-friendly solutions for hand-held, ready-to-eat foods such as burgers, pizza, pastries, and confectionary. It is said to make paper grease-resistant without releasing impurities into the packaging. It penetrates into the paper or board and attaches to each fiber to create a protective surface that protects hands and clothing from grease.

Company says Cartaguard KHI is already approved for food contact applications by the German Federal Institute for Risk Evaluation (BfR) and the US FDA, and it meets the stringent requirements for food service packaging.
