Food Contact Materials: Rubbers, Silicones, Coatings and Ink - iSmithers-Rapra
Food Contact Materials - Rubbers, Silicones, Coatings and Inks, is an amalgamation of data from four recent projects. This report provides a wealth of information taken from the results and findings of research projects on: Migration Data of Food Contact Rubbers (Two projects), Rubber Breakdown Products, Chemical Migration from Silicones used in Connection with Food Contact Materials and Articles and An Assessment of the Potential of Migration of Substances from Inks and their Respective Coatings.

Each review provides an expert overview of the products as food contact materials, with a comprehensive accompanying list of relevant references from the Smithers Rapra Polymer Library to enable further reading. In each case there is an initial in-depth description of the variety and types of products that are used in industry, and the chemical processes associated with their manufacture.

A summary of the relevant food contact regulations, together with the migration and analytical testing regimes used to assess their suitability for food contact are also included.

Food Contact Materials - Rubbers, Silicones, Coatings and Inks, brings together important sources of food contact information in a single, convenient volume and will be an important reference source for workers in the food industry in general, and within the food contact field in particular. This handbook will also be of interest to anyone who works with the packaging of food and beverages and also to those who are studying food packaging/processing.
