Development of new coatings suitable for direct food contact according to the regulation EU 10/2011 and FDA 21 CFR 175.300 that respond to the needs of food sector, in addition to other sectors affected by the regulations of the FDA, such as the pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries.
In the recent years there has been an increasing concern about possible migrations of chemical substances hazardous for food or able to be ingested in some way from the different materials when they come into contact with food. The paints and varnishes sector is not exempt from this concern. So far, paints for contact with food comply with the EU or FDA (USA) legislation. There is currently no paint on the market that complies with both legislations and therefore that responds to this new need, becoming a barrier for exportations of the food industry to the North American market.
