Certification

AMILIN® 40 fulfils the demands for direct food contact in accordance with the European Regulation No. 10/2011/EC as amended by regulation 321/2011/EC, No. 1282/2011/EC and 1183/2012/EC on plastic materials and articles intended to come into contact with food.

Global migration based on executed test made with:

Method Nor. EN 1186-4:        Exposure to olive oil by cell. Gravimetric + GC/FID determination

Method Nor. EN 1186-5         Exposure to 10% ethanol by cell. Gravimetric determination

Specific migration based on executed test made with:

Method Nor. EN 13130:

Irganox 1076                        Migration simulant analysed by GC/MS

1-hexene n-butlacrylate        Migration simulant analysed by Headspace-GC/MS

Atmer, Caprolactam             Migration simulant analyzed by GC/MS

Zinc, Maleic anhydride          Worst case calculation based on the result from overall migration.

It can be used for contact with aqueous and fatty foodstuff with a pH > 4.5. If used for foodstuff with a pH < 4.5 it must be tested again using a simulant B (Acetic acid 3%).
