Does not stick
Wax applied on paper provides a highly cost effective, reliable
solution to wrap sticky products. Demanding consumers expect consistent
release performance. Paper producers offer grades with different
porosity levels, depending on the type of wax used. Converters are
also able to choose among a wide variety of waxes to suit their
specific release performance requirements. Making the right choice
is key to ensure customer satisfaction. Waxed paper can be tailored
to specific consumer needs, based on climate, stickiness of the
wrapped product and wrapping machine speeds.
Waxed paper is basically static free. This is not only an advantage
at the converting stage, but also much appreciated by consumers.
Market analysis clearly shows that consumers do not like to struggle
with plastic packaging when trying to dispose of it. This is particularly
true for confectionery products.
