Hybrid Polymers


Novel hybrid polymers

We are creating hybrid polymers that are anti-microbial, anti-oxidant, and gas permeable. They’re new. No one else has polymers like these. They offer business and industry a very broad range of new, high value industrial, food and medical applications.

Anti-microbial, anti-oxidant, and gas permeable polymers are the stuff of innovation. They’re multi-functional, versatile, stable, cheap to manufacture, resistant and non-toxic. They have huge potential as films, sprays/coatings and fibres, to maintain quality, extend shelf-life and deliver hygienic surfaces.

The Hybrid Polymers project is a co-investment opportunity for New Zealand and international companies. It has direct connections with the Ministry of Science and Innovation, and the Materials Accelerator.
