Hansol Paper (hansolamerica.com) has entered license agreement with Smart Planet Technologies (smartplanettech.com). Under the agreement, Hansol Paper plans to offer barrier-coated paperboards using EarthCoatingTM technology, a mineralized barrier coating applied to its Duplex Board materials.

The EarthCoating mineralized resins are innovative, high performance coatings, which contain less plastic than traditional low-density polyethylene coatings. EarthCoating resins are heat-sealable, engineered for recyclability, FDA Compliant for food contact, and provide an excellent print surface.

Mr. Sang-Hun Lee, CEO of Hansol Paper says, "Since the declaration of Hansol Environmental Charter in 1993, Hansol Paper has taken the lead in adoption and early settlement of a green management framework. Consistent with our Vision 2020 master plan, Hansol looks to expand development of eco-friendly product lines.” Offering EarthCoating, Hansol plans to continue expanding its offering of more eco-friendly solutions including high-performance coated duplex board for their markets. 

At a later date, Hansol Paper plans to announce commercial availability of its Duplex Board product lines specific to end-use applications using various formulas of EarthCoating barriers.
