Ulterion Manufacturing Improvements Allow For More Economical Pricing Ulterion International has made improvements to processes for manufacturing Ulterion 300 & 500 Series Coatings and 2000 Series products making them much more affordable for sustainable packaging applications. The 300, 500 and 2000 Series products are designed to provide water resistance as well as grease holdout Pricing for Ulterion 5000 Series products have also been reduced and these products are used as a means to improve paper smoothness. The 5000 Series products also enhance print quality of paper and provide a base coat where the paper substrate needs a more closed surface for future coating applications or to provide a more hydrophobic surface than starch. Its use can also allow for lower cost fiber sources to be used. Contact your local Ulterion Representative for more details on pricing.
