Fraunhofer ISC know-how on biodegradable functional coating materials
Workshop, Würzburg, December 6, 2016
The department »Barrier and Multifunctional Layers« of Fraunhofer ISC is going to present current developments and know-how to give a close insight into their work.
Worldwide, plastic is an intensively discussed topic. More and more problems arising from littering and micro particles in the (sea) water call for sustainable solutions for the future. Bioplastics made from bio-based or biodegradable materials are promising although, until now, they could hardly meet the standard demands, e.g. barrier properties, for product applications.
Our new bio-based and bio-degradable material class bioORMOCER® allows to produce e.g. biodegradable barrier layers which are capable of competing with conventional barrier coating materials. With their good barrier properties against water vapor and oxygen, they are the missing link for ambitious biodegradable barrier films for food, pharmaceutical or cosmetic packaging.
