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 ®)





Damage analysis/ analysis of complaints
In many cases, it is not immediately obvious which kind of tests are necessary and reasonable for the clarification. Furthermore, test results which are available in short time are often helpful for further decisions. Our “diagnostic concept” provides the agreement of a limited budget (normally 700,- up to 1.000,- Euro) for the screening and evaluation of information already available as well as the realization and assessment of first tests according to an agreed schedule. The result is a more detailed view of the damage, possible solutions and indications for additional and reasonable investigations and researches are given. You will receive first reliable test results and an appropriate documentation of the current situation at short notice and at a fixed price. Information on the frequency of the anomalies ,point in time of recognition, technical information such as material structure, yet present test results are known to be helpful for successfully examination. If available, please send us reference samples, data sheets, specifications.





Determination of thickness of plastic films, aluminium foils, plane multilayer-materials and sheets
determination by mechanical scanning (accredited test method)





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)





gloss
Reflectometer value for the determination of the gloss unit. The measuring angle depends on the surface of the sample (measuring angle: high glossy: 20°, medium glossy 60°, matte:85°).





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)
