Moisture & oxygen barrier film with off gassing interceptor (Reactive Intercept Barrier System – RIBS)
Re-usable packaging system with permanent electrostatic protection and a self contained de-ionizer for corrosive gases.
The outer side of the film is carbon conductive polymer, whilst the inside layer is CORROSION INTERCEPT® which prevents the ingress of moisture; it also neutralises atmospheric pollutants and oxidising gases.
The construction of this high specification material combines an outer layer of tough polypropylene with an aluminium foil and an interior layer of CORROSION INTERCEPT®. This makes the material highly durable and when sealed the contents are cocooned within an environment that is impervious to moisture, oxygen, atmospheric pollutants and oxidising gases. When sealed (preferably with partial vacuum) this rapidly produces a micro climate within the bag that is dry and free of atmospheric corrosive gasses.
Unlike traditional scavengers such as charcoal and micro sieves, the inner layer of Intercept does not simply trap gases and pollutants it reacts with and neutralises them permanently. The material was initially developed for use in aerospace and data storage where material off gassing is a major concern, so it has been designed to be ultra low off gassing and is ironically very clean. The CORROSION INTERCEPT® layer is inherently anti-static and also acts as a passive bactericide fungicide.
