- in accordance with the series of standardized EN 1186 methods on plastics (Reg. EU 10/2011)
- in accordance with the DM 21/03/1973 on multilayer multimaterial packaging with layer intended to come into contact with food made of plastic and on articles made of stainless steel, rubbers and elastomers, silicones and glass
- in accordance with the DM 174/2004 on pipes and articles in contact with water intended for human consumption
Quantitative analysis carried out using standardized methods or methods specially developed by the laboratory using the most appropriate analytical techniques.
The determination of the residual content of a substance in the
material or in the object allows to calculate its potential specific migration assuming
a complete migration (screening approach established by Reg. EU 10/2011).
Quantitative analysis carried out using standardized methods or methods specially developed by the laboratory based on the substance to be determined and the polymer matrix.
Sepack Lab proposes this approach to verify the compliance with any migration limit of listed substances.
Semiquantitative evaluation of the contamination potential of volatile,
and non-volatile organic compounds that can migrate into food as Intentionally Added
Substances (IAS) and Non-Intentionally Added Substances (NIAS).
The NIAS in packaging and Food Contact Materials (FCMs) can be degradation or reaction products, reaction intermediates, impurities of the raw materials or other nature contaminants.
- Verification of composition requirements (DM 21/03/1973)
- Verification of purity requirements
- Color fastness
- Determination of specific substances (e.g. diisopropylnaphthalenes, phthalates, photoinitiators, Primary Aromatic Amines, formaldehyde, etc.)
Determination of Mineral Oil Saturated Hydrocarbons (MOSH) and Mineral Oil Aromatic Hydrocarbons (MOAH) in paper and board and in plastic materials.
by means of a panel of tasters trained to evaluate the potential risk of organoleptic damage of Food Contact Materials (FCMs) towards food (requirement provided by art. 3 of Reg. EC 1935/2004) according to the main standards in use in the sector, such as:
- UNI 10192
- UNI EN 1230-1 and UNI EN 1230-2
- Robinson Test
- Traction and elongation at break
- Coefficient of Friction (COF)
- Resistance to delamination
