    FEICA in the news - FOOD CONTACT MATERIALS (ECJ)

    European Coatings Journal (ECJ), issue 1/2017: Adhesives as a Food Contact Material


    Food Contact Materials (FCMs) are widely used in packaging for everyday foods and beverages. Adhesives typically make up less than 5% of the food packaging and, for most adhesive applications, direct food contact is not intended. They are however used in almost all food packaging in order to bond the different materials used. 

    In this article, published by ECJ, Jana Cohrs, Regulary Affairs Manager at FEICA, explains that the adhesives industry is working hard to ensure that its products are safe and that FEICA, the Association of the European Adhesive & Sealant Industry, has now published several guidance papers to help not only its own members but also the other actors of the food contact material supply chain to ensure that the final packaging is safe.
