EXTON, PA — Sartomer, a business line of Arkema, is launching a new range of LM (low-migration) acrylate monomers and oligomers specifically designed for the formulation of UV curable inks and coatings dedicated to indirect food contact applications.
With more than 50 years as a specialty acrylate resins supplier, Sartomer has been faced with the changing regulatory environment and has learned how to adjust its offerings to anticipate what is coming next. This expertise makes Sartomer a valuable partner to meet the more stringent requirements of current indirect food contact regulations and those to come.
Many of the standard Sartomer products already respect the general criteria used for the selection of raw materials, including compliance towards specific regulatory standards. Nonetheless, Sartomer is taking this approach one step further, considering the presence of low-level residuals that may have a greater tendency for migration. Each grade within the Sartomer LM range is produced to exacting standards to prevent the risk of cross-contamination, while a comprehensive risk assessment has been conducted to address the presence of NIAS (non-intentionally added substances).
LM product design is also reinforced by a systematic analytical quality control procedure that ensures the finished product conforms to a detailed sales specification. All products contained within the initial offering are REACH and TSCA compliant.
