INEOS Styrolution’s NAS® grades combine finish quality and durability with food contact adherence
INEOS Styrolution announced that its NAS® range is an excellent material of choice for food contact applications. Sparkling clarity, flowability, ease of processing, thermal stability, scratch and alcohol resistance are some of the key properties of NAS, an SMMA (styrene-methyl-methacrylate) grade.
The INEOS Styrolution family of NAS materials includes NAS 21 (general purpose SMMA), NAS 30 (best color, clarity, luster and chemical resistance) and NAS 90 (toughness). With international food contact regulations compliance, including USA Food and Drug Administration (FDA), European Union (EU), Chinese National GB standards and MERCOSUR food contact regulations, the company's NAS range is an excellent material choice for applications requiring food contact compliance. In addition, the NAS range also meets the USP XXIII specifications for Class VI plastics, making it suitable for even more demanding applications such as medical devices.
A trusted material with excellent thermal stability, INEOS Styrolution’s NAS grades are currently used in various household applications demanding a strong, stiff and water-clear plastic including water filters, glassware, coffee machine water containers and food containers.
With the increasing tightening of plastic food contact safety compliance regulations worldwide, it is important for food contact applications to be compliant with international regulations, according to Paulo Motta, Vice President, Specialties Business Management, Asia Pacific, INEOS Styrolution. Mr. Motta further stated that INEOS Styrolution’s NAS range provides an excellent solution addressing international regulatory compliance requirements and customer production needs.
