Tera-Barrier Films (TBF) has invented a new stretchable plastic film to offer longer shelf-life of pharmaceuticals, food and electronics.

The new plastic film featuring an encapsulated nanoparticle layer acting as an air and moisture barrier that is claimed to be ten times better when compared to the transparent oxide barriers used in food and pharmaceutical packaging.

The film is said to have the lowest moisture vapour transmission rates (mvtr), preventing air and moisture from passing through it.

TBF’s new packaging film has minimal layers due to the increase in packing density of nanoparticles offered by the encapsulated nanoparticle layer that also offers protection form water and oxygen molecules.

"The film is said to have the lowest moisture vapour transmission rates (mvtr), preventing air and moisture from passing through it."

The plastic film also has properties of aluminum foil packaging to act like high oxygen and moisture barrier, while it is stretchable and transparent allowing the packaging of electronics and RFID devices.

The encapsulated nanoparticles are claimed to adsorb and react with water and oxygen molecules to lock them in and reduce the amount of moisture and air penetrating through the film.

TBF director and chief technology officer Senthil Ramadas said the company’s strategy is to bridge the gap between aluminum foil and transparent oxide films by creating new packaging structures for applications in the food, medical, pharmaceuticals and electronics markets.

"The secret behind TBF’s film lies in our patented encapsulated nanoparticle layer that consists of nanoparticles in polymer shells," Ramadas said.

The minimal layers of TBF plastic film is expected to reduce the cost of its manufacturing process and use it in applications like Quantum dot color filters, vacuum insulated panels (VIPs), food and medical packaging.
