Wax-free GREENCOAT® boxes are easier to glue and offer the same strength as traditional cascaded wax boxes and curtain coated wax boxes without the carbon footprint. GREENCOAT® boxes are cost neutral to current wax packaging with Interstate Container controlling 100% of GREENCOAT® box manufacturing process.
