Sun Chemical's Robert O'Boyle to Speak at 2013 AIMCAL Web Coating and Handling Conference

October 11, 2013

Will conduct a seminar about barrier coatings for flexible substrates

Robert O’Boyle, a product manager of coatings at Sun Chemical, will conduct a seminar about barrier coatings for flexible substrates at the AIMCAL Web Coating and Handling Conference in Charleston, SC.

Held on Oct. 29, O’Boyle’s seminar will explain how converter applied barrier coatings from Sun Chemical can be used to compete with typical barrier laminates and ultimately provide a cost effective and unique engineering solution to barrier packaging.

Sun Chemical’s SunBar barrier coatings are designed to enable lightweighting of packaging by removing one layer of adhesive from packaging, as well as offering improved laminate flexibility. A smooth, homogenous, pinhole-free layer, SunBar coatings are easily overprinted with inks and can be laminated to a variety of secondary films.

O’Boyle will discuss how the design of barrier coatings allows for lightweight packaging and improved laminated flexibility, while still being cost-effective, recyclable, biodegradable and press-ready with few changes to current equipment.

Held on Oct. 27-30 at the Marriott Charleston in Charleston, SC, the AIMCAL Web Coating and Handling Conference brings together the converting community to advance the technologies of web processing, handling and finishing. Organized and hosted by the Association of International Metallizers, Coaters and Laminators (AIMCAL) the conference convenes leading industry professionals to improve efficiencies, reduce waste and introduce new technologies designed to improve competitiveness.
