Publication of DIN SPEC 5010 - Measurement method for the evaluation of migration from paper and board with a barrier
With DIN SPEC 5010 “Testing of paper and board - Determination of the transfer of mineral oil hydrocarbons from food contact materials manufactured with portions of recycled pulp” a standardised measuring method is made available for the evaluation of migration from paper and board with a barrier. In the individual case of application, it allows for conclusions about estimates of the migration of mineral oil hydrocarbons from fibre-based paper and board equipped with a barrier.
The project was initiated by Verband Deutscher Papierfabriken e. V. (VDP). A total of 14 project partners from industry, research, associations and testing institutes took part in the workshop on DIN SPEC 5010.
The DIN SPEC 5010 is now available free of charge at the end of April 2018 as a PDF version at the Beuth WebShop.
