Holdout™ is made from natural and FDA approved materials and has been successfully applied using standard commercial coating equipment. Patent Number 7,737,200 was published June 15, 2010.

Michael Bilodeau, Director of Process Development at UMaine, added, “Paper companies, packaging converters and food companies have been looking for alternatives to fluorocarbon and synthetic compounds for some time now, and with this patent approval, they now have access to a renewable, non-toxic barrier coating that can be used in a wide array of applications. The Holdout™ coating has been successfully applied using standard commercial coating equipment.”
