BASF developed first monomeric HALS product with food contact approval

March 24/2011

(Food Production Daily) -- BASF said it has developed the first monomeric HALS (hindered amine light stabilizer) for food contact applications in plastics. The Germany-based company announced its Uvinul 4050 FF protects polymers from degradation thanks to its combination of HALS and UV absorbers.

The product enables more effective stabilization of polypropylene (PP) applications with food contact, BASF spokesman Tobias Wolfing told To protect polymers from degradation, a combination of HALS and UV absorbers is required.

He added that while the main area of application was for consumer goods, it was also designed for food packaging across a raft of sectors - such as vegetable and fruit crates as well as bulk bags made of PP tapes for flour and cereals.
