Barrier Improvement

NanoBioMatters' unique technology is the base for high dispersion of our clay additives in the polymer matrix. The dispered clay platelets can be designed to improve key properties such as barrier, nucleation and mechanical resistance.

What is O2Block® additives for barrier applications?

Surface-modified organoclay additives based on a selection of layered minerals (phillosilicates) and food contact approved surface modification systems. These products are specifically designed to create a barrier for migrants, such as oxygen, water vapour, oils.

How does it work?
As a simplified explanation, O2Block® additives are dispersed within a polymer system and create a more tortuous path for any migrant thereby increasing the barrier properties of the polymer.

Focus Applications: Packaging (Food, cosmetics, medical)
Objective: Increased product protection and shelf-life
