Ulterion® Cup and Liquid Container Coatings
Paper cups and liquid containers of all description have traditionally been manufactured by extruding polyethylene onto paperboard, then forming the paperboard into the cup design of choice. Because it is not economically feasible to recycle board with extruded films, 250 Billion paper cups typically end up in the landfill each year. Ulterion has solved this problem by developing unique, fully repulpable and reyclable coatings that function as well as polyethylene, but eliminate all the waste. Moreover, because Ulterion cup coatings are made from recycled water bottles and other renewable materials, this serves to divert billions of pounds of plastic waste from landfills and waterways.
