Tempera® paper remains intact during the heating process

Our paper withstands high temperatures; the packaging stays undamaged during the heating process and until the kernels pop. Tempera® paper grades also offer high gluing aptitude to resist the popping force of corn in the microwave.

Tempera® is available with OK compost HOME and OK compost INDUSTRIAL certification. This certification not only confirms that our grease-resistant papers can be composted at home and in an industrial facility, but it also facilitates the process of our customers who wish to obtain OK compost labels.
