Project - BIOTECH Coatings - Alternative anitimicrobial

The present project was born as a spin-off of the successful FOODTECH & COATINGS project, whose main objective was the search for natural substances and essential oil extracts, already used in the food industry, for the preservation of aqueous coatings. Thus, in the BIOTECH COATINGS project, and in synergy with the previous one, new conservation systems will be developed for the improvement and evolution of the BioFilmStop technology incorporated in Fakolith coatings, mainly used in food industries and health sectors. The technologies evaluated and tested in this project are mainly based on the use of antimicrobial peptides, bacterial and microalgae metabolites, both free and microencapsulated, either alone or combined with our previous antimicrobial technologies. The project was successfully completed in April 2021.

FDA & EU food contact coatings,

Project - FDA & EU FoodGrade Coatings

The main objective of the project was to develop and certify the first range of paints, varnishes and coatings that meet the criteria for food safety and direct contact with food and beverages according to the European Regulation EU 10/2011 and simultaneously according to the US legislation FDA 21 CFR 175.300. In order to achieve the objectives of the project it was essential to have suitable raw materials, listed and approved for use according to the 2 legislations, to then proceed to all the tests indicated in each legislation, in Europe, mainly migrations and in the US extractions, in addition to the organoleptic and functional tests corresponding to each coating. Certifying coatings for direct contact with food and beverages, simultaneously under the 2 framework regulations of major international reference, brings to the industrialist the greatest guarantee of international food safety, in the field of technical coatings. Project successfully finished in 2019.

Project - FOODTECH & COATINGS - Coatings with alternative preservatives

The main objective of the FoodTech & Coatings project was the development of alternative preservatives and antimicrobials to traditional ones, based on food preservatives and other antimicrobial substances of natural origin, for use in paints and coatings. Those that would allow establishing a novel combined system for the preservation of the coating during its storage in the container (wet phase), while providing antimicrobial film protection, were selected and tested. The development of this project was initially focused on the development and certification of the first water-based coating suitable for food contact, with a strong added value, especially for use in sectors where antimicrobial efficacy and the absence of toxic migrations were of maximum relevance, mainly the food industry, but with possible subsequent transfer to health and household sectors. In the final selection of the preservation system and antimicrobial effectiveness, free substances were also compared with microencapsulated substances, to optimize the effectiveness and efficiency of the system. The project was successfully completed in 2016.
