FDA-compliant PU seal for direct contact with food

...The international standard for food packaging




The new polyurethane (PU) foam seal from Sonderhoff in the FERMAPOR® K31 product range received sought-after American FDA conformity. It is considered to be the recognised standard for food packaging worldwide. The FERMAPOR® K31 is applied automatically, precisely and seamlessly in the lid groove using the FIPFG process. The PU seal is also approved for direct contact with food in accordance with the EU Regulation No. 10/2011 which entered into force on 1 January 2016.

The FERMAPOR® K31 polyurethane foam with FDA conformity is used as a seamless lid seal for food containers with a filling volume from two litres. It is suitable for use in direct contact with aqueous, acid, alcoholic, fatty and dry raw food materials. This also applies for cold or hot filled or pasteurised milk and for milk products. The right ratio of the contact surface of the seal surface to the filling volume must be adhered to here.
