Nanobrick Food Packaging


Nanobrick film, a coating material for food packaging, is reported to be the most oxygen-impermeable film in existence; as impervious to air as glass is.

Nanobrick film is formed of a thin film of nanoscale bits of clay, the same kind used to make bricks, mixed with polymers. When viewed under an electron microscope, the film looks like bricks and mortar.

Nanobrick film would be added to existing plastic packaging in layers, improving its strength and blocking oxygen. Although it is made from montmorillonite clay, it is transparent allowing consumers to view the food.

The technology has other applications such as making flexible electronics, tyres and even sporting goods. It could potentially help tyres stay inflated longer than existing tyres.
