Henkel’s EPIX® technology offers brands and consumers viable alternatives to popular disposable products. From padded mailers to paper cups and food trays, EPIX® delivers solutions for your everyday paper products. The product portfolio delivers individual functional options to meet each unique challenge and transform paper.
One product family is designed to support better barrier protection in paper-based wraps and containers from water and grease intrusion. EPIX® technology solutions make paper a viable alternative to plastic for popular disposable, on-the-go products such as sandwich wraps, paper cups, and food trays.
Thermal insulation is another product family supporting heat dispersion, coolness retention, and condensation in paper cups to make it easier for consumers to handle hot beverages in paper cups. EPIX® technology is a key component of double-walled cups and hot beverage sleeve to increase temperature resistance.
Finally, EPIX® technology has a product family for eCommerce packaging. Increasing the impact resistance and reducing the payload weight, EPIX® padded mailers and other packaging materials reduce the weight of packages and eliminates the need for additional packing materials in large containers. It replaces oversized containers and envelopes with better packing materials. EPIX® technology enhances paper mailers to deliver flexible, form-fitting, and lower profile packaging options.
