Development of paints and coatings that are suitable for direct food contact

PackagingAdvanced materialsFood safetyHealthPolymer synthesisSpanish


Development of new coatings that are suitable for direct food contact according to Regulation EU 10/2011 and FDA 21 CFR 175.300 that respond to the needs of the food industry and of other sectors affected by the FDA regulations, such as the pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries.


In recent years, there has been increasing concern about possible migrations of chemical substances that are hazardous to humans if they come into contact with or can be ingested in some way when they come into contact with food. The paint and varnish industry is not exempt from this concern. Up until now, paints that come into contact with food either comply with the EU or FDA (USA) legislation. There is currently no paint on the market that complies with both regulations and can be exported to both markets, therefore catering for the needs of the food industry. This limitation is a barrier for exports to the North American market.
