International News

Continuing to be at the forefront of next generation technology, Ahlstrom-Munksjö, a leading producer of sustainable food packaging solutions, announced today its continued enhancements in the Grease-Gard® family of brands, including its Grease-Gard® FluoroFree® papers.

Grease-Gard® FluoroFree® delivers outstanding grease-resistance exceptional for food wraps, clamshells, microwave popcorn bags, and fast-food products without the use of fluorochemicals, commonly referred to as PFAS.

“When there is a preference to have grease-proof products without the use of PFAS, Ahlstrom-Munksjö has the unique capability of manufacturing them,” said Robyn Buss, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Ahlstrom-Munksjö’s North America Specialty Solutions Business Area. “Increasingly, consumers and brand owners are looking for a PFAS-free option, and yet they still need the product to meet FDA requirements for food contact, be cost-effective, and eco-friendly. We are uniquely situated to provide that option.”

Grease-Gard® FluoroFree® papers not only meet grease-resistant needs, but also offer a broad range of basis weights, excellent glueability and printability, and can be uncalendered or calendared. Staying committed to Ahlstrom-Munksjö’s sustainability initiatives, Grease-Gard® FluoroFree® papers can be produced with bleached or trulyNatural® fibers, blended fibers, and post-consumer waste recycled options that are FDA approved for direct food contact.

“We keep adapting our Grease-Gard® family of technologies to hit every performance and sustainability goal you need,” said Zack Leimkuehler, Head of Business and Product Development for Ahlstrom-Munksjö North America Specialty Solutions. “Our plants have been manufacturing grease-resistant papers since the 1930s, well before the creation of fluorochemistry and PFAS.”

As a leading manufacturer of grease-resistant papers and one of the first to engineer fluorochemical-free papers, Grease-Gard® and Grease-Gard FluoroFree® technologies flex to hit every performance spec.

The Ahlstrom-Munksjö North America Specialty Solutions team will be an active participant in the 2019 Sustainable Packaging Coalition’s “SPC Advance” conference from April 1 – April 4 in Seattle, Washington. Ahlstrom-Munksjö’s experts will play a key role in educating conference participants on PFAS alternatives, sustainable packaging solutions, and dedication to sustainable forestry practices.
