New Regulation 10/2011 on plastic materials to come in contact with foods

Since 15th of January 2011, Regulation No. 10/2011 on plastic materials and articles intended to come into contact with foods was released. All companies, using or moulding plastics have to test, if their products apply to the new regulations. Within 1st. January 2016 the new revised rules for migration tests apply. On top of the total migration (max. 60 mg/kg), a lot of specific migration limits have to be met.

As excellent alternatives, are the two Sabic Cycolac ABS grades
CYCOLAC™ MG47F MFR = 17 g/10 min (220 °C/ 10 kg)
CYCOLAC™ MG94F MFR = 39 g/10 min (220 °C/ 10 kg)
These two grades are available in natural and in all colours.

The Cycolac grades were tested according to the new migration rules of the regulation 20/2011. Both grades are furthermore available for all applications intended to come into contact with food.
Beside the European Regulation 10/2011 also the Federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Code of Federal Regulations 21 CFR 181.32and Food Contact Notification 190 will apply.
