Antibacterial Plastic: Food and Drug Logistic Applications Drive Adoption


Published on : Oct 07, 2019

 Albany, New York, October 7, 2019: Consumer and industrial polymer variants are susceptible to be affected by microbes such as bacteria and fungi. This can result in a number of issues such as physical degradation, staining, and unpleasant odors. Bacteria and fungi are capable of feeding on polymer and plastic additives, thereby potentially leading to reduced product integrity, which is more likely to occur in outdoor applications, where constant stress in the environment can substantially reduce the longevity of such plastic.

Earlier versions of anti-bacterial plastics were treated with OBPA or oxybisphenox-arsine, which is an arsenic based additive. However, the use of this material has been barred in Europe and is under review in the United States. Consequently, manufacturers have been turning to more ecofriendly alternatives.

These insights come from a research report titled as “Global Antibacterial Plastic Market 2019-2023, Trends and Forecast Report” That has been added to the vast research repository of Market Research Hub (MRH).

Materials such as silver, isothiazolinone, zinc pyrithione, and thiabendazole are becoming additives of choice for antibacterial plastic manufacturers. Combinations of different additives can dramatically reduce microbial growth.

Manufacturers are also making it easier to test the presence of antibacterial additives. Organizations such as the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), the American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists (AATCC), and the Japanese Industrial Standard have developed standardized testing methods such as the AATCC Method 30 and the JIS Z 2801.

The increasing penetration of antibacterial plastics in consumer products and packaging materials are key in the growing demand for this material. Further, these plastics are also increasingly being used as a substitute for conventional materials used in the production of medical instruments, owing to their high levels of compliance with health and safety standards, in addition to the preference for cost-efficiency.
