As it offers adhesion for paper and board, its applications include cups and pots for dairy products (including frozen), wrappings for sandwiches and cereal bars, bowls and trays for sweets and snacks, and to-go cups for hot/cold drinks. The packaging, BASF adds, can be composted after usage, and it allows the product to achieve additional barrier properties by mono or multi-layer extrusion without adhesives.
