PM16888 Is Suitable for Use in U.S. Food Contact Applications.

Techmer PM, a producer of value-added colors and additives for the plastics and fiber industries, recently introduced PM16888, an antistat additive designed for applications requiring components that are sanctioned by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and not reportable under California’s Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (Proposition 65).

The new additive, designed specifically to comply with Prop. 65, provides Techmer PM’s consumer products customers a competitive advantage because it meets FDA criteria for food contact, thereby offering a seamless solution for being in compliance with Prop. 65. Common customer applications for PM16888 include food packaging, as well as products designed to include FDA- sanctioned components.

“We are pleased to offer this new antistat additive to meet our customers’ diverse requirements for producing innovative products that are also in compliance with federal and state regulations,” says Kaan Serpersu, product development and analytical engineer. “The addition of PM16888 underscores Techmer PM’s innovation in the plastics industry. It also demonstrates our strategy to proactively address compliance issues facing our customers and be ahead of the curve on a far-reaching solution for California and beyond.”
