The German Environment Agency (UBA) publishes a new factsheet on Nanomaterials in plastic packaging
The present fact sheet focuses on nanomaterials which promise new technical or improved features for packaging.
Those nanomaterials which are used for labelling and surface coatings of such packages are, in part, the same as used in printing ink and varnish. For these, we refer to the fact sheet “Einsatz von Nanomaterialien in Beschichtungen” (UBA 2014). This fact sheet focuses on nanomaterials in plastics or plastic packages because these present a wide variety of applications for nanomaterials (German).
