Nissha Metallizing Solutions' specialty metallized paper, METIVO® VB, has a high MVTR barrier below 1gsm/day in tropical conditions. The product is especially well-suited to flexible packaging for food applications, such as dry food, confectionery, cereal bars and beverage mix powders.

Metivo VB - AticelcaCertified as recyclable paper by both Institut Cyclos-HTP and Aticelca®, METIVO® VB is an ideal, eco-friendly alternative to less sustainable and plastic-based packaging materials. METIVO® VB enables m
anufacturers to market their packaging as certified recyclable on the shelves with higher chance of being the preferred option for the final customer.

Our barrier paper has a functional, glossy, metallized side and is made of more than  95% paper that enables converters to apply additional coatings and printing varnishes while keeping a paper content above 80 or 85%.  The metallized side is preferably  facing inwards to keep its maximum performance but is also sometimes presented outwards to provide shelf appeal as a preferred quality product.

Touched by millions of consumers. Every day.
