Aqueous Lined Cups - A new waterproof barrier coating

Are Aqueous Lining cups plastic free?

Yes, the aqueous lining uses a water-based dispersion system of polymers to create a barrier, making it a plastic-free solution to traditional petrochemical plastic linings like PE.

Why are we offering aqueous lining as another option to PLA in Aotearoa?

We are always pushing for the most sustainable solution to offer our customers and believe the water based lining is a step towards simplifying sustainability.

Will we be able to created custom branded Aqueous Lined products?

Yes, compared with PE and PLA coated paper, the frictional force is larger. Plastic free paper cups are a little sticky and they are not as easy to separate, and also can not be printed with ordinary inks, which can cause colour fading. We’ve run samples of this product with excellent results.

Can the aqueous lining be heated?

Yes, its perfect for hot beverages, and can be directly heated in a microwave oven. At present, APP plastic free paper is the best and the most matured paper manufactured in China.
