Quadrant food-grade materials brochure - .PDF file.

Quadrant Engineering Plastic Products (EPP) has updated its range of food-grade plastics in line with the new EU regulation 10/2011.

The new regulation is a further development of Directive 2002/72/EC for plastics in contact with food and specifies much stricter test conditions for migration. Within the EU, compliance is required for all food-contact materials.

The company’s range of certified materials, covering PE through to PEEK, is claimed to enable food producers to fulfil high safety and quality levels for their food and beverage production systems.

Key benefits

  • All Quadrant EPP food-grade semi-finished stock shapes and customised finished parts are processed and handled according to the new regulation and to the consistent quality-control guidelines of Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP).
  • Quadrant EPP accompanies each delivery with complete documentation, from choice of raw material to finished parts; this ensures full traceability and supports customers in reducing their own in-house product testing time and costs.
  • Customers receive a declaration of compliance with the order (DCO) according to EN 10204-2.1 that ensures the uninterrupted traceability of the plastic product from the stock shape back to the raw material used by batch.
  • As part of Quadrant EPP’s Food Grade Program, customers can benefit from the company’s international partner network to select the right material for their applications; the material selection and application advice considers the food type in contact with the plastic parts, as well as temperature and food-contact time.
