There is a new European regulation (10/2011) addressing plastic materials and components intended for food contact. This applies to all unreinforced and reinforced plastics, including those that are reinforced with glass fibres. This webinar will address glass reinforced plastics and the necessary changes that you should be aware of.

The webinar will also discuss European regulation 2023/2006, which requires manufacturing to comply with Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP). GMP is required by law, bringing the supply chain to an elevated level of accountability.

What does all of this mean for you? What should you expect from your materials supplier? These questions which will be addressed during our presentations.

To comply with both regulations, Owens Corning has developed glass fibre solutions which cover a wide array of reinforced plastics needs for food and water contact. The applications for these products include coffee machines, food mixers and processors, kitchen utensils, food manufacturing machinery, water pumps, impellers and valves, as well as many other parts and components.
