How It Helps

Add Barrier Function

Amazon Papyrus AmiBarr platform provides options for the pulp, paper and packaging industries to replace environmentally persistent barriers, such as plastic coatings, petroleum-derived sizing, extruded polyethylene or PFAs chemical, with eco-friendly alternatives.

Paper as a stand-alone substrate has no inherent barrier properties. With sustainable AmiBarr barrier materials, we turn paper, paperboard, and pulp into high-performing food packaging material that delivers consumer safety, functionality and recyclability.

Paper and board coated with Amazon AmiBarr can be treated as a mono-material; therefore, the packaging materials are repulpable and recyclable. AmiBarr coating is free of PFAs, plastic, and silicone, a sustainable packaging solution with printability, flexibility and glueability.

Our barrier coatings are designed for different applications:

  • Water and water vapour resistance(WR)
  • Oil and grease resistance (OGR)
  • Oxygen transmission resistance(OTR)
  • Aroma

AmiBarr also uses in the wet-end application during molded pulp production with oil and grease resistance performance.


The complete range of barrier coating accommodates a wide range of packaging applications with different needs, e.g., food-to-go trap, cup stock, fast food service, corrugated boxes.
