The Solution

An antimicrobial additive used in the polymer formulation for food packaging.  Its addition prevents the latching of viruses or bacteria on the surface, thus keeping food fresher and safer for longer.

Case Study

A large amount of food is lost along the supply chain because of contamination caused by viruses and bacteria.

Parx Materials’ zinc-based additive is 100% food contact compatible. It is completely stable to light, temperature and humidity changes with no leaching.

When added to polymer formulations (PE, PET, PP, PMMA etc.) the material is 99.9% effective against bacteria and viruses.

This translates into less food waste, an overall fresher product (no smell) and no cross-contamination between the inside and the outside of the packaging.
