Shropshire, UK -- Smithers Rapra Publishing has launched a new book: Food Contact Materials - Rubbers, Silicones, Coatings and Inks, by Martin Forrest, amalgamates data derived from several UK government agency research projects managed by Smithers Rapra.
These projects covered a wide range of polymer products and have provided the UK's food agencies with important information on the materials and manufacturing practices used in industry, said Smithers Rapra. The scientific investigations have also "made an important contribution to the data available ... with respect to the migratory behaviour of these products when they are in contact with food," said the organisation.
This book brings together findings from the following research projects:
- Migration Data on Food Contact Rubbers (2 projects)
- Rubber Breakdown Products
- Chemical Migration from Silicones used in Connection with Food Contact Materials and Articles
- An Assessment of the Potential of Migration of Substances from Inks and their Respective Coatings
The book costs £100/$180/€160 in hardback and £80/$144/€128 for the softback version.
