Extending the shelf-life of perishable foods. Changing the atmosphere inside the packaging the shelf life of many fresh products can be extended. For example, by decreasing the amount of oxygen and increasing the carbon dioxide the shelf life of many fruits may be significantly improved. Using various gas combinations it is also possible to slow down the growth of bacteria and extend the shelf-life of other perishable foods like meat, fish and vegetables.
Normal, clear or coloured packaging film is usually made from polyethylene (PE) and is the most widely recycled plastics material.

The measurement of oxygen and water vapor permeation is often critical in medical and pharmaceutical applications; to prevent contamination, to extend the shelf life and potency of drugs and to ensure powders do not clog. Systech`s permeation analyzers and corresponding software conform to 21CFR Part 11.
Contamination free product is ever important, The Master Magnets range of Magnetic Grids, Plate Magnets, Drum Separators and Bullet Separators remove ferrous contamination from many types of packaging material. Metal Detectors can then be utilised to ensure complete protection against any metallic content.
For packaging film barriers, the Systech Illinois range of water vapor permeation analyzers offer a wide measurement range with precision temperature, humidity and flow control. These analyzers utilise the Coulometric P2O5 sensor, which is more sensitive and stable than infra-red and does not require calibration. The P2O5 is the primary method for absolute moisture measurement.
Biobased home compost grades offer an alternative waste disposal route for organic waste bags and thin film applications, such as fruit and vegetable bags. These materials already biodegrade completely in garden compost and have been awarded the OK Compost HOME certificate. Biobased offers resins for thin film applications which can be safely biodegraded in industrial composting facilities. These resins are certified according to EN 13432. As a result, thin films for applications such as waste bags,T-shirt bags,...
