UPM Solide Lucent is the perfect coating base for sustainable high barrier solutions


UPM Solide Lucent is a versatile specialty kraft paper that allows sustainability and high performance to go hand in hand: A recyclable packaging paper from renewable sources that does not compromise on functionality.

UPM Solide Lucent is ideal as a high barrier coating base for several reasons. It is extremely smooth and dense, enabling lightweight and very uniform coatings. It is food-safe and made from virgin cellulose fibres from responsibly managed forests.

Natural and renewable materials require some finetuning during the converting processes, and UPM Solide Lucent is among the most coating-ready packaging papers found on the market.

“I dare to say that UPM Solide Lucent as a coating base is as close to a drop-in solution as a paper gets,” says Janne Varvemaa, Director, Products and Technology, UPM Specialty Papers.

Designed for recycling

As an uncoated specialty kraft paper, the fibre content of UPM Solide Lucent is over 95 %, making it an excellent starting point for recyclable and even compostable packaging solutions.

The high fibre content leaves room for additional coatings whilst the final packaging product will still be recyclable in current fibre recycling streams.
