Multisorb's Concentrated Sorbents Offer Double Moisture Protection for Nutraceutical Products


Buffalo, NY - USA - August 20, 2007) - Moisture is a key threat to the efficacy, stability, and shelf life of nutraceutical products. Multisorb Technologies, a leader in active packaging technologies, will showcase its Multiform(TM) Coated Solid Form (CSF) sorbents for nutraceutical applications at PACK EXPO Las Vegas 2007 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, booth # S-5309. CSF technology provides advanced moisture protection by significantly increasing the level of functional desiccation per unit volume, inhibiting moisture-mediated degradation in sensitive nutraceutical formulations. Through condensed density technology, CSF sorbents deliver twice the moisture protection in the same dimensional space as a typical loose-fill desiccant.

"With CSF technology, Multisorb offers nutraceutical manufacturers, packaging engineers and brand owners a new range of options to protect the integrity of their products," says Robert Sabdo, business development leader, Multisorb Technologies. "By concentrating silica gel, activated carbon, or a combination of both, Multiform CSF sorbents provide enhanced protection against moisture, odor and volatile organic compounds to maintain product efficacy and shelf life."

Multiform CSF sorbents are developed with a proprietary, pharmaceutical-grade color coating to distinguish the sorbent from the nutraceutical tablets. The sorbent material can also be custom-designed to "snap" into a nutraceutical bottle cap or fit snugly at the bottom of the bottle, saving space inside the bottle to accommodate more products. The coating also limits chipping, dusting, and chalking, while its smooth surface allows clear printing of warning labels on all sides.

As its name implies, the Multiform CSF sorbent can be precision-shaped into a number of configurations that fit individual packaging requirements, eliminating the need for manufacturers to conform packaging to accommodate a sorbent. CSF can be substituted for canisters using the existing dispensing equipment on nutraceutical packaging lines, and its smooth, edge-free coating minimizes potential equipment downtime. As a concentrated solid, the technology eliminates any danger of production line contamination resulting from silica gel beads or granules escaping the canister.

Multisorb Technologies has been an innovator in sorbent technology for over 40 years. Founded in 1961 by John S. Cullen to protect products against the damaging effects of moisture, today Multisorb is the world leader in the development and production of active packaging components.
