U.S. Aragonite Enterprises, the company reinventing plastics with its renewable and sustainable Oshenite® performance mineral, introduces a new Oshenite® product that inhibits bacteria causing foodborne illnesses, odors, mold, mildew and algae in packaging and consumer goods applications. Incorporating a patented ion process technology from CMS Technology, the Fusionite™ treated Oshenite® improves the physical performance of plastics with added microbial defense.

“This new product is unlike anything currently on the market,” according to Marc Goldenberg, of U.S. Aragonite Enterprises, “the CMS Technology formula combined with Oshenite® is an extremely effective dispersion enhancer that improves physical performance and delivers microbial defense against a wide range of bacteria.
