There’s more to packaging than an attractive design and precision construction. Few packages have the ability to effectively display and protect the contents. Glassine is a unique grade of paper with many desirable properties and multiple benefits, making it a popular choice across industries.
Glassine is a smooth, translucent paper made through a manufacturing process called supercalendering – which polishes the paper, giving it an enamel-like finish and very smooth quality. Glassine is pH neutral, acid free, food safe, and provides protection against grease, water, air, and moisture. Because of these unique properties, it is a package of choice in seed, food, medical, and collector markets.
The smooth, glossy finish gives glassine a high-end feel. And the transparent material provides an attractive display. Glassine paper is also environmentally friendly. It starts from 100% sustainability-managed forests and is 100% recyclable and biodegradable.
