Innovative Plastics & Polymer Additives for Smart Packaging
| Subj: Media reviews
Smart 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.
