Climacteric fruits and vegetables generate ethylene which acts as an auto-catalyst in their ripening. Ripening increases sugar levels and thus increases the risk of their microbial spoilage and rotting during transport and storage.
Freshness preserver / Self-life enhancer masterbatches are the non-toxic and ecofriendly solution to delay the ripening process by influencing the ethylene levels thereby reducing rotting and spoilage during post harvest operations. The masterbatch either acts catalytically to oxidize ethylene OR by a physical mechanism to trap ethylene of a combination mechanism. The Freshness preserver masterbatches made up of high-quality plastic raw materials can be added to LDPE, LLDPE, HDPE, PP films, pouches, molded containers, punnets, etc. which are used to store and transport fruits, vegetables, flowers, and meat.
- Freshness Preserver / Self Life Enhancer masterbatches are non-toxic and ecofriendly
- Freshness Preserver / Self Life Enhancer is used to reduce rotting and spoilage during post-harvest operations.
- It is useful for enhancing the life of packed products. (Eg. Foods, Flowers and Edible products)
