Impermea Materials understands the significance of Organoleptic quality (aspects of food, water, or other substances that create an individual experience via the senses—including taste, sight, smell, and touch.) and its relationship with sustainable food packaging. Impermea Materials prides itself on creating innovative, sustainable, PFAS-free food packaging solutions that allow your food to retain its authentic flavors with all the added benefits.
Organoleptic quality refers to the sensory attributes that humans perceive, predominantly through taste, smell, and texture. These properties greatly influence the human experience of food consumption, enjoyment, and product perception. Traditionally, food packaging coatings have posed challenges when preserving the organoleptic properties of packaged food. Certain materials, such as plastic, can introduce unwanted odors, tastes, or even textures that can lead to an altered sensory experience for consumers.
Impermea Materials believes that preserving the freshness of the food is critical for maintaining organoleptic quality. By effectively preventing elements such as oil, grease, water, and more from permeating the packaging, the insurance of the food's authentic taste, aroma, and texture remains intact, even during extended shelf life. Impermea Materials solutions create a barrier that resists grease and oil for up to 7 days all while maintaining your product's freshness and organoleptic quality. All of our paper & paperboard solutions have excellent paper barrier solutions, such as HYRDO-PAK MVTR 4040, a hydrophobic coating with added moisture vapor transmission properties, OLEO-PAK 4100, an oil & grease-resistant coating, and REL-PAK 4700, a silicone-release coating for food and bakery applications.
In addition to preserving organoleptic quality, our paperboard solutions embrace sustainability. Impermea Materials’ coating solutions allow your paper and paperboard solutions to protect your food's organoleptic quality, prolong shelf life, and add oil & grease resistance, all while maintaining the recyclability, repulpabibility, and compostability of the paper. Impermea Materials understands the importance of minimizing environmental impact while providing effective, high-quality coatings for various applications. Our coating formulations are carefully developed to be 100% PFAS-free, Fluorine-free, environmentally conscious, and innovative without sacrificing performance. Impermea Materials coatings allow its customers to contribute to a more environmentally conscious industry and achieve their sustainability goals.

Impermea Materials, formerly known as DetraPel Industrial, is an advanced materials company based in Massachusetts that synthesizes and manufactures the highest-performing barrier solutions, which are PFAS-free and plastic-free. Our paper & paperboard packaging product line allows customers to unlock repulpable, recyclable, compostable, and PFAS-free product innovation. We offer customizable oil & grease resistant (OGR), moisture/water vapor transmission barrier (MVTR), fan-apart adhesives, and release coatings enabling customers to win new business and gain additional market share. Our products replace existing coatings that do not allow materials like paper to replace plastic due to a lack of performance. Traditional solutions in the market are facing regulatory action due to PFAS, Plastic, or other less sustainable materials. Our solutions provide an offering that genuinely outperforms legacy technologies without sacrificing the sustainability you need.
