Oplon is a materials science company that develops protective products, coatings and processes, based on a novel polymer compound. Oplon's coatings prevent the colonization of microbes by creating a protective physical shield on surfaces.
Oplon's technology changes the rules of the game in many industries. Take milk, for instance: an open container with Oplon's coating can keep milk fresh for over 30 days. The milk will not spoil even when stored at warm room temperature. Keeping milk fresh this way- without chemical preservatives or antibiotics- profoundly alters the costs, methods, value chain and practices of milk production, consumption and delivery.
Oplon offers its solutions in five key markets: Food & Soft Drinks, Dairy, Medical Devices, Agriculture and Aqua.
Oplon's coatings protect the natural taste and nutritional value of food and beverage products, without the need for potentially harmful chemical preservatives and expensive, energy intensive, manufacturing processes. Oplon's coating prevent bacteria-related infections from forming on medical devices, protect wounds and burns from bacterial infections; and treat dermatological conditions.
Oplon's patented technology is validated by its renowned academic advisory board led by noble prize winner Professor Roger Kornberg.
