Michelman¡¯s Plate Kote Series is a clear overprint varnish that offers superior food release characteristics, and resists the seepage of moisture into the paper substrate. This allows manufacturers to produce a more durable, high gloss, and aesthetically pleasing paper plate that consumers prefer. For the benefit of the manufacturer, the coating also exhibits excellent release in the plate forming process.

¡°The availability of our OU-certified kosher food package coatings has definitely raised the bar for the coating industry,¡± stated Jennifer Reed, Michelman¡¯s Global Regulatory Analyst and acting OU Kosher Coordinator. ¡°Many coatings used in food contact applications are considered kosher solely based on the fact the raw materials used to make them are not of animal-origin. We made the decision to pursue true certification by an independent authority. This provides our customers total assurance that the kosher status of our coatings is in no way compromised.¡±
