Swedish company FreeForm Packaging AB is launching a new, paper-based, high-barrier packaging product.

The high barrier has a thin layer that protects the packaging against oxygen transition and is environmentally friendly.

To date, FreeForm Packaging has only been able to sell a non-barrier solution, but as a result of the new oxygen-impermeable packaging, the company said it can now offer packaging with good OTR and WVTR values.

Danevert Åsbrink, CEO of FreeForm Packaging, said, “This is an important step for us and very long-awaited solution, since the need for protecting goods in paper-based packaging has increased a great deal in recent years. The first European “high barrier” FreeFormPack Machine will be installed after the summer, which is very exciting.”

The FreeFormPack high barrier has a thin layer of EVOH, giving the packaging extra protection against oxygen transition from the outside and making it possible to pack products in a modified atmosphere.

FreeForm said it aims to help products stand out on the store shelves, and with the new high barrier solution, FreeForm Packaging can offer extra protection for products that need to have a longer shelf life.
