MEDIA RELEASE - Longer and more accurate shelf-life with A*STAR 'smart' packaging material technologies

Published on : 27 Nov, 2014

IMRE signed an agreement with key industry partners to develop and test a new packaging material from IMRE for industry use. The newly developed packing plastic inĀ­corporates nanotechnology that is based on non-toxic ferric compounds and has a unique dual purpose high-barrier plate silicate sheet, which effectively blocks moisture and oxygen from seeping into the packaging, and scavenges oxygen to create an anaerobic environment that makes perishables last longer than they would in regular plastic packaging.
