Research and Development in all aspects of packaging (and its allied processes) is a daily activity at Bell's NPD Center called the Cube Lab. This stunning proprietary technology creates a water repellent surface on packaging. Notice the difference between the coated surface and the uncoated side (left) which absorbs water. The droplets of water on the coated side are instantly and forcefully repelled from similar to the effect of water on Lotus leaves. Applications of usage for this amazing new process are now under development.
