Fakuma 2018: Phon Tech with focus on food-grade materials

The Taiwanese TPE expert Phon Tech will exhibit at Fakuma 2018. A highlight at the stand in hall A7 will be new TPE grades that comply with German LFGB.

The company recently announced that it has successfully developed thermoplastic elastomers that comply with German LFGB §31. This regulation consists of different specific tests to make sure the material is safe for contact with foodstuff, which includes sensorial examination, specific migration of metals, global migration, specific migration of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH), nonylphenol in polymers and screening of plasticizer.

TPEs are used for plenty of food contact products, such as kitchenwares, cutting knifes, chopping boards, food container seals, etc and therefore the safety of TPE for food contact is essential. (Source: Phon Tech)
