Butter Wrap

Butter Wrap

High greaseproof metallized paper for butter wrap. Specially developed to inhibit the ageing process.

Our butter wrap paper is a perfect monomaterial alternative to multi-layer materials traditionally used for butter block packaging.

  • Butter wrap

Our papers offer exceptionally high greaseproof values and have been developed to ensure they do not spoil with grease stains or unsightly visual defects at any point during the product's shelf life.  

We are proud to have designed a technically exceptional butter wrap that is specially composed to inhibit the ageing process of butter. Our paper therefore supports that butter's shelf life is extended. The bold, metallized finish offers brands premium looks and maximizes the shelf appeal of butter. 

We have refined our butter wrap to have optimum tear resistance and folding behavior. It is optimized to run exceptionally efficiently on the most common butter wrapping machines.

AR Metallizing's product is free of PFOS and PFOA. Our outstanding greaseproof performance is provided by a paper mass treatment that does not contain long-chain perfluorinated compounds such as PFOS and PFOA but fluorochemicals with shorter perfluoroalkyl chains (in C6) for the sake of health and safety.

The metallized finish of our butter wrap paper is perfect for end-users looking to market an up-market, quality dairy product. Because our papers are ready to print, they also facilitate seasonal and promotional messaging.

Touched by millions of consumers. Every day.
