Verso Introduces GlazeGuard Family of Lightweight Oil and Grease Resistant Papers

June 2, 2016 - Verso Corporation today introduced GlazeGuard™, a family of lightweight uncoated machine-glazed papers designed for demanding oil and grease resistant (OGR) foodservice applications.

The GlazeGuard product family is an integral part of the broader portfolio of Verso machine-glazed laminating and converting papers specifically designed for flexible packaging applications.

Featuring OGR levels ranging from Kit 5 to Kit 8, GlazeGuard offers excellent runnability, converting performance and multiple PFOA-free chemistries, all key performance requirements for end-use applications such as sandwich and deli wraps, foodservice liners, microwave popcorn bags and laminated food pouches.

"Foodservice packaging converters and end users seeking OGR paper options with the right combination of quality, performance and run-to-run consistency will find that Verso's GlazeGuard OGR papers excel in these critical areas," said Mike Weinhold, Verso Senior Vice President of Sales, Marketing and Product Development.

The GlazeGuard product line is produced on paper machine No. 5 at Verso's Androscoggin Mill in Jay, Maine, and offers several basis weights, ranging from 15.5 lb. to 33 lb. (3000 sq. ft.), each optimized for specific end uses.
