Texte AlternatifThe Packaging, Transport and Logistics Research Centre (ITENE), has developed new coatings with the capacity to repel insects and absorb moisture on flexible packaging materials. Those are applied during flexography and gravure printing processes and result in packaging materials with adequate transparency and good adhesive properties between the coating and the substrate. The results from evaluations show a clear repellent effect, with reductions in insect contamination of 80 to 90% compared to existing packaging materials. The dried pasta product stays in a better state of conservation during the product’s shelf life. Plásticos del Segura is working on the industrial scale-up, to innovate in packaging solutions with high added value. Pastas Alimenticias Romero validated the high quality and safety of the new active packaging with its own products.
