The food & beverage and potable water markets have always been concerned with ensuring a safe product for customers to enjoy. Standards and regulations serve an important role in guaranteeing this is always the case.
FROM THE FDA AND NSF IN THE UNITED STATES,
to the European Community and KTW across the Atlantic, a range of regulatory bodies create legislation, regulations and standards to give guidance for the processes that make the food that we eat and the liquids we drink. They aim to create a regulatory environment that protects consumers and results in high quality products. But, with changing regulations and different standards across the globe, how do manufacturers keep up? That’s a question that Trelleborg Sealing Solutions aims to answer for its customers.
“In general, we’re seeing regulations becoming more strict globally, and new legislation being introduced in emerging markets” says Eberhard Baisch, Polymer Laboratory Manager for Trelleborg Sealing Solutions in Stuttgart, Germany. “Our material development laboratories work together globally to stay ahead of the changing market conditions”.To support these changing standards, Trelleborg Sealing Solutions has developed new compounds, such as the new EPDM compounds, E75F1 and E85F1, which offer a number of benefits to food and beverage manufacturers.
