Next generation food contact compliant fibre sizings

News International-French

24 Feb 2014

JEC Europe 2014 - Sizing manufacturer Michelman Fibers & Composites has developed a specific fibre sizing range which is food contact compliant according to the Commission Regulation (EU) no.10/2011 repealing Directive 2002/72/EC, based on its historically successful standard fibre sizings.

At the JEC Composites Show 2014, Michelman emphasizes its product management strategy where end-use applications are critical. Exhibiting at this world-class industry event will draw international attention to the food contact challenge technical fibres are facing. Because the company cares about how fibres are used, new regulations are constantly at the top of its scientists’ minds.

The new attribute of Michelman sizings does not affect their performance: all these water-based – either polyurethane or polypropylene based – film formers are APE- and HAP-free and feature good hydrolytic resistance and thermal stability.

Next generation Michelman film formers are ideal for sizing fibres to be used in composites intended for applications such as coffee machines, food processors and other appliances and kitchen items where food contact compliance is required.
