Materials and articles in contact with foodstuffs - Plastics - Part 13: Test method for overall migration at high temperatures
|Publication Date:||1 October 2006|
|ICS Code (Materials and articles in contact with foodstuffs):||67.250|
This European Standard specifies test methods for the determination of the overall migration into fatty food simulants from plastics materials and articles, by total immersion of test specimens in a fatty food simulant at temperatures from 100 C up to and including, 175 C for selected times. Also described is a procedure with a substitute test medium. In this substitute procedure the mass of components adsorbed on modified polyphenylene oxide (MPPO) is taken as a measure for the assessment of the overall migration into olive oil. The described methods are most suitable for food contact articles in the form of sheets and films, but can also be applied to a wide range of articles and containers.
