Innovative Plastics & Polymer Additives for Smart Packaging

Published on 30 Jun, 2017

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.
