WESSLING is pioneering in analyses of materials coming into contact with foodstuffs: our technicians and scientists apply cutting edge laboratory technologies and the most advanced technical/professional expertise in making sure that the packaging material you manufacture is safe for consumers.
A variety of new regulations have been introduced in recent years, containing increasingly comprehensive and more and more deeply detailed rules on the labelling, traceability, manufacture, composition and analysis of materials coming into contact with foodstuffs.
Conformity must be certified now in many cases by laboratory test results.
Specific dissolution: dissolution of monomeric substances, additives, contaminants (antioxidants, softeners, metals, primary aromatic amines, formaldehyde)

The EU's framework regulation, Regulation (EC) 1935/2004, regulates the requirements for all food contact materials. There are also further European regulations, directives, national legislation or recommendations which may differ extensively depending on the characteristics of the product.
The WESSLING experts keep an eye on the specifications: benefit from reliable laboratory analysis in combination with tailored expert services. Our specialists are certified for analysing official cross checks according to Section 43 of the German Food and Feed Code (LFGB).
