CHROMATOGENYDiscovered by our Chief Scientist, Dr. Daniel Samain, chromatogeny is the "Gore-Tex®" of paper.
Chromatogeny is A green chemistry (solvent-free) dry process that provides any cellulose-based material, such as paper or cotton, a permanent waterproof character. OIL AND AIR BARRIERS ARE ALSO POSSIBLE. A TRULY SUSTAINABLE SOLUTION, IT PRESERVES ALL THE RECYCLABILITY AND COMPOSTABILITY PROPERTIES OF THE MATERIAL.
CHROMATOGENY WAS DISCOVERED BY OUR CHIEF SCIENTIST, DR. Daniel Samain, BY SERENDIPITY ON A Christmas Eve.
Chromatogeny requires very small quantities of an already available reagent. $50-$150 is the total estimated cost per ton of the process.
A PERMANENT TREATMENT
Waterproof properties are permanent as the substrate is grafted with a covalent bond. The only way to remove it is a 48h hydrolysis in an alkaline NaOH solution.
A TRULY SUSTAINABLE SOLUTION
Our patented process keeps all the recyclability and biodegradability properties of the material.
Industrial feasability has already been demonstrated in France and South Korea.
SAFE FOR CONSUMERS
What is left on the treated paper is simply a fatty acid ester, a safe component of dietary fats.
OIL AND AIR BARRIERS
Combined with specific coatings, oil and air barriers can also be achieved while keeping all the environmental benefits.
