Description of the problem

Fakolith leads several official Research projects related to paints and varnishes suitable for direct and indirect contact with food. Gradually we are incorporating products that are approved by both the European standard EU 10/2011 and the American standard FDA 21 CFR 175.300. Not only we are focused on foodgrade epoxies, we have already widen our range to other types of paints and varnishes for direct contact with food; aqueous dispersion, acrylic enamels, varnishes, polyurethane finishes or other hybrids. The current as well as the future applications of these paints and varnishes are creating new opportunities, ranging from food packaging in wood and derivatives, cardboard, EPS, interior of pipes, hot water tanks…
