Ritrama introduces new food topcoating

March 31, 2014

The line includes two polypropylene films, two polyethylenes and a coated paper.

Ritrama has released a range of self-adhesive food labeling materials, which includes two polypropylene films, two polyethylenes and a coated paper. All these face materials, including the films which feature the specialist coating (TCF) and their adhesives are fully compliant with the major directives governing the food industry:  ISEGA, the BfR (German Recommendations on Food Contact Materials) and EU regulations for direct contact to dry and moist foodstuff as well as US standard FDA (Food and Drugs Administration).

According to Ritrama, there are stringent criteria which a label has to meet in order to be considered a suitable packaging material in the food industry: application to cold and moist surfaces, contact with fatty substances and oil and storage at deep freeze temperatures. Self-adhesive materials are regulated by EC 1935/2004 requiring the use of packaging which does not contaminate food, and also EU 10/2011, a standard which specifically refers to all components of a filmic multi-layer label construction which forms part of food packaging: this includes face materials, adhesives and top coatings.
