The monthly jury, comprised of experts from diverse fields selects the materials providing an impartial choice. The panel of experts recognizes new, unique and high quality materials - many available for the first time ever. Material Connexion felt that the sustainable Oshenite® mineral added a unique addition to their innovative collection. Specifically cited was Oshenite®’s ability to work well with other materials in plastics and the CMS Technology Fusionite™ combined with Oshenite® product: “Oshenite® is an extremely effective dispersion enhancer that both improves physical performance and delivers microbial defense against a wide range of bacteria. Due to the very high surface area and zeta potential, Oshenite® is an ideal carrier for Fusionite™ to perform in plastics.”
