Innovative Plastics & Polymer Additives for Smart Packaging

Aishwarya Chaudhari & Akash Iyer – Jun 30, 2017

Smart PackagingSmart packaging is a packaging system that goes beyond conventional packaging, with functions such as sensing and logging data.

The ‘active’ part in the smart packaging system performs the sensing function, while the ‘intelligent’ part communicates this sensing information to a user.

Although, metals, glass and organic materials have several applications in smart packaging systems, but plastics and polymers have gained traction in smart packaging due to their high flexibility, lightweight, low cost, etc.

Some of the research activity is also be inclined towards development of intelligent additives having hybrid features, which are compatible with polymers, and are thermally & mechanically stable.

Read this article now and find out more about the innovative plastics and polymers additives used in smart packaging market.

Are you sure the polymers/plastics are scavenging oxygen? If yes, it would have been more interesting to see the mechanism. Please comment.
