ANTIBACTERIAL polymers through biomimicry


A revolutionary biocompatible technology to reduce bacteria on surfaces with an efficacy of 99,9% and more - measured according to ISO22196/JIS Z2801

USING biocompatible, bodies own element, sustainable and 100% safe

Non-toxic, no metal form, no nano, No MigratioN


Parx developed a technology that departs from biomimicry and that is making use of a biocompatible, bodies own trace element to make polymers resistant to bacteria without migration. Biomimicry is the science and art of imitating the best biological models, systems and elements in nature to invent and improve functionalities and make them more sustainable. With this patented technology we develop antibacterial/antimicrobial and anti-biofilm plastic and polymer. It is like an immune system that has an efficacy of 99,9% or more without any leaching substance. The technology becomes an inert/intrinsic part of the material and improves the mechanical/physical property of the material making it more resistant. The technology is not consumed and does not leach out and so it last throughout the entire lifetime of the product without fading away.

KEY APPLICATIONS

FOOD SAFETY and FRESHNESS

Deliver the highest level of food safety and hygiene in food contact applications such as food packaging or food processing environments. By preventing the adhesion and proliferation of bacteria on food contact surfaces Parx is improving the condition of the foods, reducing the risks of outbreaks, reducing bad smell, improving the freshness and ultimately improving shelf life. Cross contamination due to subsequent contact between different packaged foods (meat, vegetables, fish) is reduced or eliminated completely.

PIPES & DRAINS

The improved mechanical properties of plastics realized with Parx technologies result in the prevention of adhesion of biofilm and bacteria. No biofilm build-up in pipes and tubes prevents clogging and leakages. It improves the overall hygiene and prevents outbreaks. With the Parx technologies there is also a build-in protection against legionella that normally grows very well in in these conditions.

MEDICAL APPLICATIONS

Probably the topmost risk related to medical implants is: risk of infection. Plus, biofilm formation on implant surfaces shelters the bacteria and encourages persistence of infection. Preventing biofilm and the proliferation of bacteria on the surface of the implants with the biocompatible technology of Parx mimics the defense mechanism of the human immune system. Increasing the safety of plastic materials in hospital environments dramatically reduces the nosocomial problems of contaminations and infections common in these environments.

OVERAL IMPROVED HYGIENE

The benefits of a more hygienic surface are countless and the applications are endless. It can offer great peace of mind for your customers using the product and can be leveraged as a good intrinsic value. The safety of a material is a value regardless of the type of application; Parx technologies adds an important technical property for all applications.

Derived from nature

Parx has done extensive biomimetic research in cooperation with renown universities and has been able to develop a unique way to create Sanipolymers™. Our technology is based on biomimicry. It is derived from nature. Nature can do amazing things, so why not make use of that to create sustainable solutions.

a global interest

All other todays available antibacterial technologies make use of heavy metals, nano-materials and other toxic chemicals, Roughly all of these technologies work because of a migrating substance. They have a substance that leaches out of the plastic or polymer to kill bacteria but... these toxic substances will also end up in our environment, in our oceans, on your food, and in your body.
