Roll-to-roll processing of nanocellulose into coatings

Nanocelluloses are attractive materials as barrier coatings for packaging. However, nanocellulose suspensions cannot be easily coated using the traditional coating processes, due to their complex flow properties, e.g. high viscosity. Continuous roll-to-roll coating of nanocellulose onto paper-based substrates has been successfully demonstrated in the dissertation project of Dr. Vinay Kumar.
