HaloPolymer: Fluoroplastic Meets Requirements

Fluoroplastics F-4 and F4-D made by HaloPolymer were successfully tested by leading European laboratory SGS Multilab in France, and awarded with certificates of compliance with European Directive No. 10/2011, which established requirements for polymers intended for contact with food.

The value of possible harmful substances migration has been determined during the test. Furthermore, both specific migration of hazardous components (tetrafluoroethylene), which are very typical for fluoroplastics, and the total migration were measured. The test was performed under the most severe conditions of fluoroplastics use: 4 hours at the boiling point of two model media - 50% of ethanol and 3% of acetic acid; and 4 hours at 175°? in olive oil.

The obtained results confirmed that all specimens conform to the requirements of the European Union. Therefore, the fluoropolymers made by HaloPolymer can be used in the EU food industry.
