Arichemie, the specialist for pigment preparations will again have a stand at the world’s leading trade fair for the paint and coating industry in Nuremberg. The innovation that Arichemie will showcase are water-based pigment preparations developed for direct and in-direct food contact applications. Further new developments being presented are the isothiazolinone-free preservation of Vocaflex-EN and the MIT-free preservation of the Vocaflex-LF series.
Arichemie will present Vocafil-FC and Vocafil-FD, the new pigment preparation series for food contact applications. The migration of substances in food-related applications is a technical problem that has become increasingly complex in recent years. The aim of the new development was to take into account the most important regulations of the BfR and the FDA in connection with the Regulation (EU) 10/2011 on Plastic Materials, the so-called PIM list and Annex 10 of the Swiss Ordinance. Vocafild-FC only used pigments and additives that are suitable for food contact requirements but is based exclusively on FDA-approved pigments. At present, 23 Colour Indices of organic and inorganic pigments are available as well as low PAH carbon blacks,
