Functional Coatings

The SAES Group is actively involved in the development of special functional coatings able to provide a variety of properties in several fields of application.

The combination of SAES unique expertise in top-down and bottom-up chemistry with polymer formulation and state-of-the-art mixing technologies is generating a number of new materials and solutions in the fields of food packaging and permselectivity, hydrofilic and hydrophobic surfaces as well as in gas sensing and new market-driven applications.

These developments are often involving partnerships with customers and research organizations to achieve the targets through fast, objective-oriented collaborations.

SAES Functional Coatings are developed at present mostly for flexible packaging applications, from food to home&personal care to nutraceutical and pharma packaging.For instance, in these markets we presently provide coatings with oxygen and aroma barrier properties, obtained from sustainable water-based lacquers, that guarantee the recyclability or compostability features of the final packaging.

Our R&D labs are also developing new coatings to be applied on the most diverse surfaces, from home appliances with anti-microbial function to book covers and pages for the creation of special effects and features.
