Butter Wrap

KIT 9 value metallized paper for butter wrap

Our butter wrap paper can be a recyclable alternative solution to the multi-layer materials traditionally used as a material for packaging butter blocks. Our papers have a KIT 9 equivalent value. It is fully compliant with European and FDA rules and certified for direct food contact.

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 superior properties of our butter wrap paper are further aided by the aluminum layer which specifically inhibits oxygen and light reaching the inner packaging, preventing the yellowing of the butter product.

We have refined our product to have optimum tear resistance and folding behavior. The result is that it runs quickly on all butter filling lines and particularly, Benhill wrapping machines.

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.
