Treatments
Plastic Extrusion Coated Board:
Normal carton board is coated on the back with LDPE, PP or PET. The coating works as a barrier between the product and the board. As the product does not come in contact with the board directly, it helps in preventing seepages. It proves to be a good grease and moisture barrier. It is used for packing frozen foods, desserts and ice creams.

Grease Resistant Coating:
Normal carton board is coated with a grease resistant coating on the back. It provides a good barrier and prevents grease and oil from the product to seep through the carton. It is used for packing food products, fried and oily food products, cakes, cookies etc.
