Practical Guidance on Migration Testing for Compliance with Regulation (EU) No 10/2011 for Plastics
Food contact materials in the European Union (EU) are regulated by the Framework Regulation (EC) No 1935/2004 and the GMP Regulation (EC) No 2023/2006. The Framework Regulation is implemented for plastics by the Plastics Regulation (EU) No 10/2011 and its amendments. The Plastics Regulation is the most comprehensive exa
Notifying New Food Contact Substances in the USA - Food Contact Notifications and Other Routes
Prior to 1995 the only route available to a company wishing to notify a new food contact substance in the USA was a Food Additive Petition. This was a long process, generally taking 2 to 4 years to get clearance from FDA, followed by another 12 months before the relevant new regulation appeared in Chapter 21 of the Code of Federal Regulat
Multi - Characterization (DMA, DSC, FTIR, TMA) Protocols for New Material Development and Formulation Optimization
Today there are multiple characterization tools like DSC, DMA, FTIR, TMA etc. to either characterize materials or to solve complex formulation or processing issues. Comparative studies need to be presented that show the information that can be obtained through the use of different characterization tools and help the formulators to mix and
Metal failure analysis including identification and remedies from a practical perspective
Products failures before achieving its lifetime are always undesired. To identify a problem that has occurred in a metal component, tooling parts or structure a failure analysis becomes necessary. If well interpreted the fracture can tell the all history behind the failure, this training focus on the practical aspects of fracture
How to Carry Out Migration Testing and Comply with EU Food Contact Regulations for Plastics?
Food contact materials in the European Union (EU) are regulated by the Framework Regulation (EC) No 1935/2004 and the GMP Regulation (EC) No 2023/2006.

High temperature polymers - Technology and selection criteria based on specific applicationsHigh temperature polymers are polymers that meet higher requirements than standard or engineering polymers. They are more expensive and generally used in smaller amounts. For many years, their use has been very limited to specialized applications in area like aerospace and defense fields. In fact, many high temperature polymers
How to do catalyst selection, design and optimization for formulation improvement?
Through the continuous development of catalysts, reactions become faster and more profitable for any industry. Catalytic processes are the most prominent and efficient processes in polymers, manufacturing, chemicals and other sections including oil and gas. Catalytic action is known to be affected by a
