Covestro's TPU Desmopan® for Food Contact Use
In January 2016 Covestro Deutschland AG changed the nomenclature of several Desmopan® food contact grades, to make it easier for the customer to find the correct Desmopan® grade for his application.
All Desmopan® grades which are in compliance with the various regulations (see register below) now contain the suffix “GMP” in the product name (e.g. Desmopan® 9380A-GMP).
The food contact sign which has been in use on our packaging for several years, will be kept on the packaging in addition to the new suffix.
“GMP” stands for “Good Manufacturing Practice” defined in Regulation (EC) No. 2023/2006;
This regulation requires manufacturers to introduce a quality assurance system and a quality control system. The quality control system must include corrective measures for eliminating any weak points related to achieving good manufacturing practice.
The following list gives a quick overview of the available Desmopan® food contact grades.
More information can be found in the register below. You will find the pdf-file with the declaration of compliance following the links below.
