Cattie Adhesives – Barrier Coatings

What is a Barrier Coating?

Barrier Coatings are designed to be applied to paper, paperboard or corrugated board substrates in order to provide a moisture barrier, grease barrier or other required barrier properties. Barrier coatings can be used on both Food and Non-food paper and corrugated board packaging applications.

A Barrier Coating, blocks the passage of various substances including; water, moisture vapor, oils and grease under a wide range of conditions and temperatures.  Moisture vapor transmission rate  (MVTR), sometimes called water vapor transmission rate  (WVTR), is a measure of the passage of water vapor through a substrate during a period of time. There are many applications where moisture control is critical.

Foods and Moisture Sensitive Products are packaged with Barrier Coated paperboard material in order to control the MVTR and achieve the required quality, safety, and shelf life.

In the building and construction industry, barrier coatings and membranes are used to improve water resistance and MVTR to control the flow rate of water vapor.


The Values of a Barrier Coating are that it provides – Package Protection,  Improved Appearance,  Higher Productivity,  Environmentally friendly and provides a Longer shelf-life for your products.  Barrier coating performance usually improves when multiple layers are applied to the substrate.


Cattie Adhesives manufactures a Full Line of Moisture and Grease Barrier Coatings for Paper and Corrugated Board Packaging  and many other industrial Packaging, Paper Converting and Product Assembly Applications.

Our Barrier Coatings for Paper and Corrugated Board Packaging applications can be formulated to be Low, Medium or High Viscosity for a variety of porous and non-porous substrates including UV, Clay Coated and SBS Papers, Boards, Films, Foils, Woods, Plastics, Corrugated material, Coated board and Vinyl.

Our Moisture and Grease Barrier Coatings for Paper and Corrugated Board Packaging are “100% water-based” with no VOCs and can be formulated to be FDA Compliant for Direct and Indirect Food Contact.  

Our Barrier Coatings are commonly used on paperboard materials in order to control the MVTR and achieve the required quality, safety, and shelf life.
