In order to improve the shelf life of some food products (bread, fruits, vegetables, ...) or avoid the degradation of works of art and musical instruments, Certech is developing new active packaging materials able to regulate the relative humidity of their content.
Our research projects include the following topics:
- Evaluation of the water uptake of mineral or natural fillers
- Dispersion of fillers into oil based or bio-based polymer resins using lab scale or pilot scale extruders.
- Film production by cast film or blown film extrusion with filled polymers.
- Thermoforming of polymer films.
