M545TF Food Contact Grade
New ABS Grade
Elix Polymers, Tarragona, Spain, has launched a new ABS grade for use in products that come into contact with food and which also require extra toughness and resistance to high temperatures. Target applications include kitchenware, products for preparation and storage of food, and also toys. The new M545TF grade will enhance the company’s Healthcare portfolio, which already includes grades for medical devices, cosmetics, food contact applications and toys.
The latest grade has been migration tested with different food simulants. This enables Elix Polymers to advise its customers about migration issues and regulatory compliance during the product design phase, helping to prevent problems before they occur and shortening time to market.
M545TF can be supplied precolored, with Elix taking the responsibility for compliance of the pigments with food contact regulations. Elix Polymers’ current portfolio of FDA-approved colors already includes more than 120 active recipes; new colors are under continual development. No use of colorants and dyes, dispersants or process aids is allowed in recipes, unless they are approved in the base material; only FDA/EU pigments are used
