Specialty paper & packaging

At the beginning of 2021, LANXESS acquired Intace SAS, a Paris-based biocide company. Intace SAS formulates specialty fungicides for the protection of paper and paper board. The formulations complete our portfolio for specialty paper & packaging. Among the main applications are fungicides for soap wrapping paper and stiffener, for banknotes as well as for bottle labels.

Soap wrapping paper

Biocides are needed to inhibit fungi or fungal spores from turning into active mold. Microbial contamination of soap wrapping paper leads to an unaesthetic presentation of the product. On top, some types of fungi can cause human health issues, including respiratory infection and immunological disorders.

Fungicides prevent mold development and protect the packaging during its whole life span.

Banknotes

Banknotes and security documents have a risk for bacterial and fungal contamination due to their high circulation. As soiling is the major reason for banknotes being prematurely removed from circulation, biocides are needed. They can prolong the life span of the banknotes, help to diminish cost of additional printing and reduce the spread of diseases.

Bottle labels

Many bottle labels naturally contain mold spores. In warm and humid conditions, these are likely to grow. Even wet glues that are used to glue the label to the bottle, might encourage fungal growth, as they contain natural ingredients. Fungicides prevent bottle labels to become unaesthetic and unreadable.
