Area of application – Gum & Confectionary wrappers.
KandyKote® is patented, Smart Chemistry for the conversion of paper-based gum and confectionary wrappers to replace wax wrappers.
Hot waxed confectionary & Gum wrappers require 3 processes to convert, including print, suppling and hot wax dipping. Hot waxed wrappers are not recovered from waste and require centuries to degrade in landfill/environment.
KandyKote® wrappers allow conversion in a single process, benefits include up to 25% yield advantage, and wrapper degradability.
