Oplon's Technology Marks a New Era in the Battle Against Bacteria Typically, micro-organisms thrive on surfaces and it is simply a matter of time before they impact the environment within. Using chemicals to protect against these micro-organisms has historically been successful; however, the toxicity of the chemicals used and its effect on materials remains a major concern.
Oplon is engaged in research and development related to controlling the population of microorganisms, methods of killing microorganisms, antimicrobial materials, and processes of applying antimicrobial materials to a variety of packaging solutions.
Oplon has developed a range of effective surface protection, as well as antimicrobial compounds that are used as coatings. These coatings challenge the negative effects of contamination and provide safe and cost effective alternatives to the traditional approaches .
Oplon’s antimicrobial coatings are an advanced composition of polyelectrolytes contained within a polymer matrix. On contact with liquids, a surface electric field is created, which disrupts cell membranes safely, effectively and inexpensively . Based on this physical phenomenon, Oplon's coatings act as an electric shield that kills yeast, mold, bacteria and certain viruses - disrupting and destroying them upon contact.
Oplon’s physics-based technology protects against a wide spectrum of bacteria and fungi, including antibiotic resistant and heat resistant pathogens. Oplon's materials are non-toxic, environmentally friendly, and do not leach or release chemicals.
