Polyethylene is known for its excellent waterproof properties, but also for its high oxygen permeability. On the other hand, starch is a good oxygen barrier, but it is water sensitive as well. A good mixture of both materials should result in products with high water- and oxygen-barrier properties. The combination of both materials in a blend is currently not used for the production of films, but it is potentially very interesting.
