Anti abrasion cardboard

Surface Protection.

Prevent marks / scuffs in transit

Whilst corrugated cardboard packaging may feel smooth, it can prove abrasive to high quality surface finishes. Nomar coating eliminates this issue, which besides minimising items being rejected / returned due to damage (and the costs this incurs), also eliminates the need for secondary packaging.

Besides the benefits for your customers, Nomar can boost the performance of your sheet plant too. By offering a wider range of products you can upsell or cross-sell to existing customers, whilst runs from 500 sq. metres ensure you can offer flexible MOQs as well.

01: What is Nomar?

Minimise damage to decorative surfaces and eliminate secondary packaging

Nomar is a coating for corrugated cardboard that reduces transit damage to a products surface (e.g. scuffs / scratches), minimising rejections and returns.

This also eliminates need for secondary protective packaging (such as papers, plastic bags etc.), reducing packing times and costs. This in turn can have a significant impact on productivity, reducing costs.

Nomar is also suitable for use when manufacturing slip sheets, due to its’ durability and toughness.

It is also easily converted on standard equipment and glue-able with water based adhesives, safe to handle (no need for PPE), fully recyclable and incurs minimal disposal costs. All this, and it is available on 48 hour lead times, allowing you to meet urgent requirements and minimise stock holding.

Happy customers of GWP Coatings

Suitable for practically any polished, painted or decorative surface – including plastics and glass – the use of Nomar can eliminate the need for secondary protective packaging. This has seen some users reduce their packing times by 40%, significantly boosting productivity.

By offering an increased product range it allows you to up-sell and cross-sell to your existing clients, as well as boosting your chances of winning new business. Nomar can also be overprinted, which can also help to improve your margins whilst offering your customers enhanced brand awareness.

As Nomar is manufactured to ISO standards, your business will also see the longer term benefit of gaining a reputation for supplying the highest quality products.

This allows you to offer your customers competitive pricing no matter the size of their order. An additional benefit is that you only need order the amount you need to fulfil a particular order and not be left with additional board which, if retained, would use valuable warehouse space to store.

Benefits to operational efficiency of your sheet plant:

  • Runs from 500 sq. metres, enabling you to offer lower volumes to your customers

  • Manufactured to ISO standards, ensuring highest levels of quality & boosting repeat business

03: Benefits for Users.

Ways your customers will benefit from Nomar anti abrasion coating

In increasingly competitive market places, the aesthetics of products are more important than ever.

Scratched or marked items can put off customers and have a detrimental effect on sales, not to mention the additional costs associated with returns and writing off damaged stock.

By offering your customers corrugated packaging that is finished with Normar anti-scuff coating, you provide them with an effective way of protecting their items whilst they are in transit.

Making use of Nomar coated board also allows your customers to eliminate their need for secondary packaging (e.g. plastic bags).

Anti abrasion packaging
Any painted, printed or highly polished surface can be susceptible to scuffs, making Nomar suitable for a wide range of industries

Besides noticeable improvements to their productivity – customers can easily reduce their packing times by up to forty per cent – it also reduces the size and cost of their packaging inventory, having a direct impact on their profitability.

Suitable for a huge range of consumer products and protecting materials including glass, highly polished metals, plastics, high quality printed retail packs and even gas packed products (it reduces pin-holing to minimise spoilage), a large proportion of your customer base is likely to benefit from its use.

04: Technical Specifications.

Technical details and information for colour flood coating

The inside of a corrugated container can be an extremely rough environment.

While it may seem reasonably smooth to the touch, the jarring and impact which occurs during the shipping cycle can cause significant, observable damage.

Nomar helps to protect items from the potentially abrasive nature of corrugated cardboard.

It is a water based synthetic emulsion that coats corrugated board and eradicates damage in transit caused by abrasion and rubbing, in turn protecting the packaged article. In many cases, the ‘packaged article’ is not only the product itself but its highly-printed and varnished display pack.

Anti scuff packaging
Nomar anti scuff coating can be combined with intelligent packaging design to eliminate the need for foam or other secondary packaging

Besides this, Nomar has limited flexo printability (as a minimum, use premium inks), and is available in various tints for identification purposes.

The coating utilises water-based synthetic emulsions, with typical coating weights of 2.0 – 3.0 wet pounds per MSF (10-15 GSM).

This also means that Nomar coatings are repulpable in both acid and alkaline systems, ensuring it does not incur disposal costs and can be safely handled without the need for protective equipment.

  • Runs from 500 sq. metres, enabling you to offer lower volumes to your customers
  • Further added value / improved margin through overprinting logos, graphics etc.
