Protecting Against Moisture
Aptar CSP’s patented three-phase Activ-PolymerTM technology is comprised of a network of interconnected, transmitting channels that facilitate the diffusion of gasses into the polymer matrix. This channel structure enables Aptar CSP to engineer formulations that absorb or release gasses from polymers. Gas diffusion is controlled through the channel composition.
“Active” particles are added to the polymer in order to:
- Adsorb or Absorb (moisture, gases, reactive impurities, odors)
- Release (aromas, biocides, nutrients, carbon dioxide)
Aptar CSP can custom engineer tight seals that prevent air and moisture ingress under extreme conditions. In addition, we can create a single-part protection solution that releases low/no particles, providing a dust-free environment for your components.
The polymers can be extruded, injection molded and blow molded. In addition, our solutions do not use environmentally-damaging epoxies or polyurethane, enabling safe recycling.
