Rubbers in contact with DRINKING WATER, regulations and what has changed?

Rubbers in contact with DRINKING WATER, regulations and what has changed?   

At the moment several countries within Europe are changing their requirements for testing and accepting products which come in contact with drinking water. This presentation will give you a brief overview for the most accepted criteria towards rubbers in contact with drinking water within Europe. Besides that recent developments will be highlighted, such as:

-       the new Dutch regulation 2017 ‘Regeling materialen en chemicaliën drink- en warm tapwatervoorziening’

-       the new UBA regulations 2019 ‘Anlagen der Bewertungsgrundlage für Kunststoffe und andere  organische Materialien im Kontakt mit Trinkwasser (KTW-BWGL)‘ and what that will mean for the Elastomer Leitlinie (ELL)

We will go in detail what has changed compared towards the old requirements and besides that explain the new methodology.

Organic Peroxides used in polymer products coming into contact with food- and drinking water.

Organic Peroxides used in polymer products coming into contact with food- and drinking water.   

A short introduction covering Nouryon and its product portfolio for the polymer industry will be given. Main topic will focus on the Approval Processes concerning Organic Peroxides related to Food Contact and Drinking Water Materials. More specific the presentation highlights the requirements to get an organic peroxide approved for use in food contact materials as set by the European food contact regulations. Although organic peroxides (aids to polymerization) are not yet in the scope of the regulation on food contact polymeric materials, the EU requirements are nonetheless applicable when asking for an approval in Member States. The approval processes for organic peroxides in the Netherlands and Germany are discussed.

The second part of the presentation tries to enlighten the current complex situation in European regulations on drinking water materials.

Rubber for pharma or food applications

Rubber for pharma or food applications   

It is evident that rubber in the food or pharma industry has completely different requirements than rubber used in construction or car tyres. While some common techniques are undoubtedly used in the evaluation of the compounds, such as hardness, tensile strength or modulus, a very important additional concern for pharmaceutical rubber or rubber in contact with food, is the cleanliness. First of all, the chemical cleanliness is essential. Since this rubber can be in long-term contact with food or drugs, it is critical that no hazardous substances are leaching out of the rubber. Under the motto “what you don’t put in, can’t come out”, these compounds generally contain as little and as pure ingredients as possible. Second, the particulate cleanliness is a concern as well, especially for pharmaceutical applications. As little particles as possible should be present on the rubber parts, e.g. to avoid any of these particles getting into the drug. To this end, many precautions are taken to obtain a very clean production environment, and highly controlled cleanrooms are used for the most critical applications. Consequently, not only the final products, but also the production area can have a completely different look depending on the envisaged application for the rubber.

Testen van voedselcontact materialen

Testen van voedselcontact materialen   

Food contact materials are subject to regulations on their safety. In Europe, Framework Regulation (EU) 1935/2004 sets out the main requirements for the safety of food contact materials in the European Union.

However, only few categories of materials receive specific guidance from the EU on how to comply with this safety requirement.

 

In this presentation, Job will give an insight into the Food Contact regulatory framework, and how rubber materials are treated within this framework, the varying approaches within different EU member states, and a brief look at how other regions (FDA, China) have implemented regulations for rubber materials.

Requirements in production of elastomer parts for food and pharma industry

Requirements in production of elastomer parts for food and pharma industry   

Material requirements for elastomer parts used in pharma and food industry are a standard demand. Next to these requirements customers require a production environment and process in line with the material requirements. Challenges to meet both material and production requirements in order to meet market expectations. ERIKS implemented an approach for these challenges during the building of a new clean manufacturing facility
