At Impermea Materials, we strive to create solutions that enhance durability, resistance, and performance while maintaining substrates' recyclability, compostability, and repulpability. Our cutting-edge technologies have revolutionized diverse markets, including paper &paperboard packaging, textiles, healthcare, and beyond. Join us as we explore the world of sustainable solutions and learn how Impermea Materials is reinventing the future. 

Impermea Materials makes ordinary materials behave in extraordinary ways, allowing our clients to unlock new possibilities for PFAS-free and plastic-free product innovation. Impermea Material’s paper & paperboard packaging barrier coatings t provide water resistance, moisture, and oxygen barrier, excellent oil resistance, and superior release properties. Impermea’s paper & paperboard solutions include HYDRO-PAK 4000, HYDRO-PAK+MVTR 4040, OLEO-PAK 4100, and REL-PAK 4700, which can be utilized in cosmetics, food packaging, and more. 

Impermea Material’s textile solutions are a water-based coating technology that creates a superoleophobic and superhydrophobic repellent coating for textiles of various fabrics. HYDRO-TEX 1000, HYDRO-TEX + UV 1010, HYDRO-TEX+VIRUSHIELD 1030, OLEO-TEX 1100, OLEO-TEX + UV 1110, OLEO-TEX + FR 1120  allows coated textiles to repel oil & liquids with different additives  protection from UV rays, flame-resistance, and more. Our textile solutions can be used for firefighter gear, weather gear, menstrual underwear, or upholstery for automobiles and furniture. 

Impermea Material’s Healthcare solutions are designed to turn textiles into superhydrophobic barriers that block stains and repel liquids. HYDRO-TEX+VIRUSHIELD 1030 is a patent-pending protective coating technology that traps smaller droplets that may contain active viruses, preventing thier transmission through a VIRUSHIELD-protected surface. This formulation is water-based, non-toxic, and PFAS-free, which maintains breathability and does not alter the look or feel of the substrate. This solution is suitable for use in the medical field or fabrics such as scrubs, gowns, PPE, barrier fabrics, COPD vests, and medical tourniquets.
