Continuing to be at the forefront of next generation technology, Expera Specialty Solutions, a leading producer of food packaging solutions, announced that it continues to expand its Grease-Gard family of brands, including its Grease-Gard FluoroFree papers.

Grease-Gard FluoroFree delivers outstanding grease resistance exceptional for food wraps, clamshells, microwave popcorn bags, and quick service restaurant bags without the use of fluorochemicals.

“When there is a preference to have grease-proof products without the use of fluorochemicals, Expera Specialty Solutions has the unique capability of manufacturing them,” says Robyn Buss, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Expera. “Increasingly, consumers are looking for a fluorochemical-free option, and they still need the product to meet FDA requirements for food contact and be cost-effective and eco-friendly. At Expera we are uniquely situated to provide that option.”

Grease-Gard FluoroFree papers not only meet a wide variety of grease resistant needs, but also offer a broad range of basis weights, an array of finishes, and great glueability and printability. Staying committed to Expera’s sustainability Initiative, SOAR, the Grease-Gard FluoroFree papers can be produced with bleached, natural, blended and post-consumer waste recycled options that are FDA approved for direct food contact.

“We keep adapting our Grease-Gard family of technologies to hit every performance and sustainability goal you need,” says Zack Leimkuehler, Product Development Manager for Expera. “Expera has been manufacturing grease-resistant papers since the 1930s, well before the creation of fluorochemistry.”

As a leading manufacturer of grease resistant papers and one of the first to engineer fluorochemical-free papers, Expera Grease-Gard and Grease-Gard FluoroFree technologies flex to hit every performance spec.
