NanoPack first results have been published under the title ‘Occupational exposure during handling and loading of halloysite nanotubes – A case study of counting nanofibers‘.

Halloysite nanotubes (HNTs) are used in NanoPack films to encapsulate antimicrobial essential oils. When inhaled, they could represent a potential health risk.

In this paper, the potential inhalation exposure to HNTs in an industrial research laboratory was assessed. Read the full article here to know what researchers found.
