Replacing Plastic with Fibre-based Barrier Packaging


Replacing Plastic with Fibre-based Barrier Packaging

Material Change for Good

Barrier Packaging

Cellucomp manufactures Curran®, a patented bio-based technology platform that adds functional properties to pulp and other materials in order to replace plastics and PFA’s and other synthetic chemicals in a wide range of products, thus creating Material Change for Good.

Curran has a myriad of uses within the packaging industry, most of which are centric to food and personal care which leverages our strength and high barrier properties compared to incumbent technologies.

  • Lowering CO2 (moving from solvent based to water based)
  • Replacing plastic
  • Reducing waste (recyclable)
  • Reducing substances of high concern (no Fluorochemicals – PFAS)
  • Improving barrier properties (oxygen, water, grease)

Brands with Powerful Differentiation

Fibre-based Barrier Packaging

is ideal solution is fibre-based packaging with a water-based coating, offering both PERFORMANCE (strength and necessary barrier), recyclability, compostability and BIODEGRADABILITY.

Material Change for Good

Revolutionary Technology

CelluComp has invented a proprietary process that is unique in allowing the properties of cellulose nanofibres (CNF) from vegetable waste streams to be fully utilised. Curran® fibres are strong, stiff and light; properties which allow the production of composites with performance characteristics comparable to those based on conventional carbon fibre technology.
