transfats_popcornUS-based producer of flexible packaging, technical, label and converting papers, Verso has unveiled a bleached, uncoated machine-glazed paper with oil and grease resistance (OGR), GlazeArmor Micro, for use in microwave popcorn bags.

The new solution is part of Verso’s GlazeArmor family of lightweight uncoated machine-glazed OGR papers.

It is designed to prevent grease spilling from both inner and outer ply layers of microwave popcorn bags.

Developed at Verso’s Androscoggin Mill in Jay, Maine, US, GlazeArmor Micro offers kit grease resistance levels ranging between Kit 6 to 12.

It enables high-speed bag converting, as well as popcorn packing and filling operations.

Verso sales marketing and product development senior vice-president Mike Weinhold said: “Our GlazeArmor Micro papers excel in the critical areas that matter most to microwave popcorn brands seeking high-performance OGR paper options – quality, performance and run-to-run consistency.

“We deliver these American-made papers with the same level of highly personalised customer service, experienced technical resources and overall attention to detail that customers have come to expect from Verso.”

Verso’s GlazeArmor range is designed for machine-glazed laminating and converting papers used in flexible packaging applications.

The GlazeArmor products feature OGR levels ranging from Kit 5 to Kit 12, as well as runnability, converting performance and various perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA)-free chemistries.

The products are suitable for use in sandwich and deli wraps, as well as foodservice liners, microwave popcorn bags and laminated food pouches.

Verso recently unveiled Metallized Paper, a new addition to its PAPER@WORK series.

Verso Corporation is the turn-to company for those looking to successfully navigate the complexities of paper sourcing and performance. The leading North American producer of printing and specialty papers and pulp, Verso provides insightful solutions that help drive improved customer efficiency, productivity, brand awareness and business results.
