Application of ProvisionGARD
How is PROVISIONGARD™ applied?
ProvisionGARD is an insect preventing fumigation alternative used to combat infestation by Indian Meal Moths, Grain Beetles and Flour Beetles. ProvisionGard™ insect-suppression coating is ideally applied to paper-based packaging during the printing or converting process. In many instances, ProvisionGard™ water-based coating replaces the coating already in use. Flexographic and rotogravure are the usual application methods. Typical coating weights required vary from 1.0 – 2.0 pounds per 3000 square foot ream.
ProvisionGard™ products can also be used in Woven Polypropylene packaging. Here, the insect-resistant “active” is incorporated into the BOPP/WPP material during the lamination process via a food-grade polyethylene pellet additive, excellent for rice packaging safety.
Films can also be produced using these same additive pellets by mixing them during the film casting or blowing process. This could include creating multi-layer film structures for film packaging and even stretch-film.
Adhesives for film and paper bonding can deliver the ProvisionGard active by a simple addition to their current formulation. This includes solvent-based, solventless, and water-based systems.
Once applied, we can supply a certificate of fumigation upon request.
