Barrier papers for packaging

Protect your product with renewable and recyclable barrier papers. Depending on end-use, you can choose protection from medium to advanced barrier properties, while ensuring a sustainable impact on the shelf.


Recyclable barrier papers from sustainable sources


Say goodbye to non-renewable packaging with the help of UPM's unique barrier papers, that are made with renewable fibres from sustainably managed forests. UPM's barrier papers protect your product without the need for a plastic coating and can be recycled with regular paper waste. They are safe for direct food contact and are free from fluorochemicals. Take advantage of the high strength properties UPM papers offer. All papers are designed for runnability in packaging line and can be further converted. Suitable for Flexo and Offset printing.
