Non and Direct Food Contact Coatings
Non-food contact coatings and direct food contact coatings are two different types of coatings used in the food industry.
Non-food contact coatings are used to protect surfaces that do not come into direct contact with food, such as the outside of packaging materials or the walls of food processing facilities. These coatings are designed to be durable, resistant to abrasion, and easy to clean.
Direct food contact coatings, on the other hand, are used on surfaces that come into direct contact with food, such as the inside of food packaging or the surfaces of cooking utensils. These coatings must meet strict regulations and be safe for human consumption. They are also designed to prevent the transfer of any harmful substances from the coating to the food.
In general, direct food contact coatings are subject to more stringent regulations and testing than non-food contact coatings due to the potential risk of contamination.
Phoenix does not offer direct contact coatings; we do offer non direct food contact coatings.
