Why Use Pre-Coated Paper


According to the paper,"Microplastics and other harmful substances released from disposable paper cups into hot water", published in the "Journal of Hazardous Materials" (Journal of Hazardous Materials). It shows that within 15 minutes of holding the hot liquid, the lining material will be degraded to a certain extent, thereby releasing microplastic particles, harmful ions and heavy metals into the liquid.


Moreover, these microplastics come from the lining material of the paper cup. The inner surface of the paper cup is usually lined with a layer of hydrophobic film. This film is usually made of polyethylene plastic. This compact structure also prevents the liquid contained in it from leaking out. Studies have shown that after holding hot water in a paper cup, the plastic surface will degrade with the action of hot water within 15 minutes.
