Examinationmethods



Conformity Status
The conformity status is a summing up and evaluation of the available information concerning food regulatory assessment of the specified article. It identifies, where required, open issues of compliance work.





SML (specific migration limit) analysis of individual substances for compliance evaluation
Quantitative analysis of substances with limits (SML, SML(T), QM, QMA etc.) or non-evaluated substances by gas chromatography (e.g. HS-GC, GC/MS), liquid chromatography (e.g. HPLC/MS), mass spectrometry with inductively coupled plasma (ICP-MS) in food simulants or foodstuffs after migration or (residual) content determination in the material or article





overall migration acc. Reg. (EU) No 10/2011 standardized testing conditions (OM1- OM7)
Regulation (EU) No. 10/ 2011 (PIM)/ DIN EN 1186 classical food simulants (not alternative tests like Isooctane testing): A= Ethanol 10 % (v/v), B= Acetic acid 3 % (w/v), C= Ethanol 20 % (v/v), D1= Ethanol 50 % (v/v), D 2= Vegetable oil, E= poly(2,6-diphenyl-p-phenylene oxide) (Tenax ®)





Seal strength, tensile test on strips (temperature range -40 to +120 °C)
Seal strength of machine-made sealings from pouches, sacks, packages, lidding films sealed on trays, cups etc. or sealing samples according DIN 55529 or ASTM F 88 (1 inch or 15 mm wide specimen), DIN EN 868 part 5 appendix D of medical packagings inclusive description of appearance of fracture.





Microtome section
cross section of films, moulded forms, sealed seams, etc. incl. thickness determination of visible layers with reflected or transmitted light microscope (accredited test method)





haze/ transparency
Method for quantification of the optical properties of transparent or translucent materials (not coulored or metallized). The test method describes the scattering of light caused by deterioration of a film. A low haze value characterizes a low turbidity equivalent to a good visibility of details behind or under the film lying fillings or labels. With increasing haze value the "frosted - glass- effect" increases, ie, details, eg Labels are ultimately recognizable only by direct contact with the surface. ASTM D 1003 = calibration without compensation port vs. DIN ISO 13468 = calibration with compensation port. The measured values differ slightly, but the measurements are carried out in principle on the same principle.





Oxygen transmission rate (OTR) of plastic films, laminates, coated papers, Alufoils, etc.
ISO 15105-2, ASTM D3985, ASTM F1927, DIN 53380-3;coulombmetric method (Mocon)
