PROTĒAN™ Grease Barrier

Innovative Alternative

PROTĒAN™’s unique formula offers double the range of 3M kit values when compared to existing fluorine-free alternatives. The grease barrier properties allow the paper-based packaging to maintain dry strength while allowing the coating to run 20% faster than alternative options. PROTĒAN™ delivers impressive grease-resistance properties to paper with a lower overall coat weight.
