Our antimicrobial additive is designed to enhance the safety and longevity of food packaging. It actively inhibits the growth of bacteria and mold, ensuring the packaging remains hygienic and extends the shelf life of the food products.

The AMBX additive is a special additive in the form of a masterbatch used to provide products with antimicrobial properties. It has been developed by MatX and has the ability to make products >99.99% free from microbacteria without the use of biocides.

Absolutely, our products are designed for durability and long-lasting antimicrobial action, even with regular cleaning, making them ideal for maintaining hygiene.

Thanks to the passive anti-adhesive principle, bacteria and fungi have no chance of survival. Because the technology does not rely on migration, there is no leaching, and bacteria cannot build up resistance over time.

In the food industry, maintaining hygiene and preventing contamination are crucial. Our additive helps in keeping the packaging free from harmful microbes, thereby reducing the risk of foodborne illnesses.

The functionality of the technology does not rely on migration, so nothing leaches away from the material over time. That means it will never run out; it is simply always there. So it will never fade away or wear off.

The AMBX additive is effective against a wide range of microbacteria. While it can contribute to reducing the spread of resistant bacteria, it’s important to note that it doesn’t provide complete immunity to all types of bacterial resistance. It is still important to practice proper hygiene and infection prevention.

Yes, our additive is developed with safety as a paramount concern, ensuring that it is suitable for direct contact with food and complies with food safety regulations.
