We test and appraise the compliance of food packaging during all the manufacturing steps - from the production of the polymers and packaging materials to the modification via printing and coating, the filling of the packaging, and finally to the recycling.
Our knowledge of the relevant legislation and our analytical expertise and facilities allow us to address customer-specific issues and develop new analytical methods.
Our work involves evaluating the interactions between polymers and contact media. We systematically study the transfer (migration/permeation) of chemical substances into contact media such as a packaged food or other packaged products. A key area of expertise is determination of diffusion and partition coefficients and subsequent modeling of the material transport processes.
With our research results we support EU legislation:
The test laboratory has been accredited by DAkkS in accordance with DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025 for measuring the the migration and residual content of many monomers and additives. The accreditation applies for the test methods indicated on the annex to the certificate [D-PL-11140-04-00] and includes the development of new methods.
The sensory analytics laboratory has been accredited by DAkkS in accordance with DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025. The accreditation applies for the test methods indicated on annex to the certificate [D-PL-11140-04-00].
