Plastics colourant receives FDA approval
01 June 2006
BASF's pigment preparation Eupolen PE Blue 69-1501 has received Food Contact Notification approval from the American Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The pigment can now be used in concentrations of up to 2% in plastic items that come into contact with food, including closures for drink bottles, crates for fruits and vegetables, freezer boxes, drink cans, plastic cups and packaging films. Coloured materials and articles may be used up to 70°C according to the conditions for use.
Apart from the food packaging applications, Eupolen PE Blue 69-1501 is also suitable for use in all kinds of injection mouldings. Its high level of compatibility with other pigments offers the user a large degree of flexibility with regard to colouring, and as it is supplied in a free-flowing and low-dust form, it can be processed cleanly without any problems.
