Assessing the suitability of polylactic acid flexible films for high pressure pasteurization and sterilization of packaged foodstuff
Abstract Effects of high pressure (HP) pasteurization and sterilization processes on the properties of commercial biodegradable polylactic acid (PLA), used as packaging material, have beenExpand
The transport mechanisms of gases through metallized films intended for food packaging applications
Metallized polymeric films are amongst the most favoured candidates for replacing aluminum foil-based multilayer films. The main advantages in using the former instead of the latter are: weightExpand
An Integrated Approach to Analyze Long-term Moisture Transport in Honeycomb-core Sandwich Panels
A predictive model for the time evolution of moisture uptake within a honeycomb-core sandwich has been developed. The model takes into account the water diffusion into the skins as well as into theExpand
Effects of High Pressure Treatments on Polymeric Films for Flexible Food Packaging
Effects of high pressure (HP) treatments on functional and morphological properties of commercial packaging films have been investigated, to assess their suitability for use in these processes.Expand
Moisture transport properties of polyamides copolymers intended for food packaging applications
In this paper the barrier properties of a series of polyamides used for food packaging applications were analyzed. In particular, permeation of water through the investigated polyamides was studiedExpand
Simultaneous gravimetric and calorimetric analysis of chloroform sorption in nanoporous semicrystalline sPS
Chloroform vapor sorption in semicrystalline syndiotactic polystyrene with a nanoporous crystalline form has been investigated by simultaneous gravimetric and calorimetric analysis to gatherExpand
