Cardboard coatings market: An overview

The cardboard coatings market is globally seeing a bloom inferable from rising prominence of sustainable coating. Paper is an amazing material for different applications, for example, printing, packaging and microfluidic because of its biodegradability, mechanical properties, and recyclability and of course light-weight property. The hygroscopic nature and porosity of the item packaged may force difficulties to control and comprehend the transport of water, gases, and oils. To prevent all these factors, further treatment of paper applications is done with external coatings.

Cardboard coatings market: Dynamics

Cardboard coatings market gets benefits from the merchants who are rendering eco-friendly coatings for packaging of items.

Coating is considerably an activity by which the outside cardboard is secured by coating items such as emulsions or fluid suspensions, which are coated on and in different layers of the cardboard. So as to build the resistance of the cardboard from the entry of moisture and humidity, the cardboard sheet is then "coupled" with sheets or films made up from plastic materials which are waterproof in nature. The advantages of cardboard coating are that it decreases the product spoilage and damage and provides an ease of transportation and logistics.

The biopolymers acts as barrier coatings for paper applications which have the potential to completely replace the present synthetic coating material which are depended on sustainable assets and offer various positive environmental benefits, such as better recyclability, biodegradability and non-toxic quality contrasted with the traditional polymers used for coating.

The use of nanotechnology could be a new way of developments towards the use of biopolymers as barrier coatings. For instance, biopolymers can be applied as coating in either ways.  Firstly, the nanoparticles can be applied over paper to improve water obstruction or mixed with nanoscale added substances, such as, nanoclays, nanocellulose, inorganic and natural nanoparticles to upgrade the hindrance against water, gas, oil and grease. This advancement would be progressive in reducing billion amounts of cardboard waste found in landfills around the world. Another objective of the innovation is to understand a coated cardboard with a coating film steadily attach to the cardboard, which is degradable and reasonable for use in packaging of items. Therefore, this trend can bring diverse growth in the cardboard coatings market.
