Benefits and Uses

Softak® is an easy-to-apply water-based, functional coating that increases the angle of skid of paper to 30-45 degrees. By preventing slippage, it enhances the transport efficiency of palletized loads, boxes and furniture.

  • Easy to apply with conventional corrugated coaters or offline
  • Gluable with a wide range of hot-melt or cold-set adhesives
  • Print receptive
  • Repulpable in both acid and alkaline systems
  • Film-forming
  • High coefficient of friction
  • Alternative to spray applications
  • Suede-like feel after drying

Softak® is typically used for:

  • Slip or tier sheets to prevent slipping of palletized loads, boxes and furniture
  • Coated paper used as temporary flooring where skid resistance is critical
  • Protective floor mats for highly-polished surfaces during moving phase
  • Jewelry and perfume packaginghe

A number of SofTak® variations are available, all providing improved angle of skid. Those offering the highest performance require specific drying parameters. Others allow more drying flexibility.
