Self-Cleaning Plastic Wrap Developed for Foods in Canada


Scientist at McMaster University in Canada have developed a non-stick wrap that is resistant to adhesion by bacteria.  The product could have application in the food industry and in health care facilities.  The wrap is both repellent to bacteria and inhibits formation of biofilms. The formulation incorporates a chemical treatment that suppresses bacterial proliferation.

The wrap has yet to attract a partner capable of commercializing the product.
