As earth day approaches, many individuals and organizations reflect on their sustainability, ways to reduce waste, and their environmental impact. At Impermea Materials, sustainability and environmentally conscious practices are at the core of what we practice, produce, and believe. In today’s article, we will explore how our company creates sustainable solutions while being an eco-friendly manufacturer; whether you are a customer, supplier, or fellow sustainability enthusiast, we hope that Earth Day will inspire you to take action toward a more sustainable future.
Impermea Materials is working towards a sustainable future by creating plastic-alternative coating solutions. With coatings like OLEO-PAK 4100, HYDRO-PAK+MVTR 4040, and REL-PAK 4700, Impermea Materials offers high-performing plastic alternatives for paper and paperboard packaging. Our coatings are designed to address issues such as water repellency, oil and grease resistance, low moisture and vapor transmission rate, and silicone release properties. These solutions make paper packaging perform like plastic without compromising its recyclability, repulpability, or composability. Impermea Materials is known for its high-performance coatings, but what sets us apart is our commitment to producing PFAS-free and fluorine-free coatings. PFAS, also known as ‘forever chemicals, ’ are toxic substances in hundreds of everyday items in the modern world. PFAS chemicals do not break down within our environment and are harmful to human health, the environment, and animal life. PFAS is extremely toxic and is proven to affect aquatic life negatively. By creating PFAS-free (100% fluorine-free) materials, Impermea Materials is helping customers reduce their environmental impact and promoting sustainability without sacrificing performance.
Impermea Materials coating solutions are innovative, eco-conscious, sustainable, and incredible packaging solutions for your industry needs. Not only are our solutions high-performing and PFAS-free, but they are also environmentally conscious. Impermea Materials’ innovative coatings require 75% less coating than leading brands to achieve the same high-performance results, resulting in reduced production waste and a significant difference in environmental impact. The result of less production use and materials allows the limit of waste in landfills and minimizes ecological destruction, allowing our solutions to be high-performing and sustainable. Our coatings are formulated with high-quality materials that provide exceptional adhesion and resistance to moisture and other environmental factors, ensuring that your products are made with environmentally friendly materials that do not harm the environment. Our superior coatings have been tested and proven to last over seven days against oil, grease, and water, by far outlasting our competitors, whose coatings only last 30 minutes against oil, grease, and water in testing.
As we approach Earth Day, we must reflect on our actions' impact on our environment and world and take steps towards a sustainable future. At Impermea Materials’ sustainability is the heart of what we do. We work hard to create solutions that are not only high-performing but PFAS-free, recyclable, repulpable, and compostable, making them a leader in sustainable and eco-friendly manufacturing processes. By choosing Impermea Materials, you can be confident you are making a difference without compromising performance. Let’s reinvent the world together and create a more sustainable future one coating at a time.
Impermea Materials, formerly known as DetraPel Industrial, is an advanced materials company based in Massachusetts that synthesizes and manufactures the highest-performing barrier solutions, which are PFAS-free and plastic-free. Our paper & paperboard packaging product line allows customers to unlock repulpable, recyclable, compostable, and PFAS-free product innovation. We offer customizable oil & grease resistant (OGR), moisture/water vapor transmission barrier (MVTR), fan-apart adhesives, and release coatings enabling customers to win new business and gain additional market share. Our products replace existing coatings that do not enable materials like paper to replace plastic due to a lack of performance. Traditional solutions in the market are facing regulatory action due to PFAS, Plastic, or other less sustainable materials. Our solutions provide an offering that truly outperforms legacy technologies without sacrificing the sustainability you need.
