Technical Association of the Pulp and Paper Industry (TAPPI)

TAPPIAs you develop coated paper solutions for packaging, ensure that they meet key requirements that are outlined by the Technical Association of Pulp and Paper Industry (TAPPI).

Coated paper and paperboard are the most challenging materials to analyze for transmission rate, due to the porous paper layer(s) and leakage from edges.

With paper being a high gas transmitter (it’s porous), coatings provide the gas barrier needed to ensure a products shelf life. Characterizing your coatings and production processes for transmission rate is critical to commercial success.

Since our inception in 1966, AMETEK MOCON analyzers have been analyzing all types of packaging materials. The new coatings today are approaching the barrier levels of many polymers. However, if not analyzed correctly to eliminate edge diffusion issues, your high barrier material will provide you with erroneous results.

As you develop coatings and optimize processes, we can verify that your barrier measurements meet TAPPI’s requirements. For this reason, AMETEK MOCON’s precision instruments and coated paper application experience is key to obtaining accurate results.
