On March 27, 2018, at 02:00 pm CET (Central European Time), the Food Packaging Forum (FPF) will hold a public webinar on the substance surfynol as an example of reprotoxic chemicals in food contact articles.

Surfynol is used in adhesives applied to construct multilayer plastics or to glue plastics to paper. Components of surfynol can migrate through the different layers of multilayer packaging and transfer to water and other food simulants in contact with the packaging.

Prof. Dr. Cristina Nerin from the University of Zaragoza, Spain, and her colleagues found boar sperm stored in surfynol-containing multilayer plastic bags to exhibit decreased reproductive capacity (FPF reported). Prof. Dr. Nerin will present the details of this research and discuss its implications for reproductive health.

The talk will be followed by an interactive Q&A session.

The webinar is free of charge and registration closes on March 27, 2018, at 01:00 pm CET – spaces are limited. You will receive information for joining the webinar upon successful registration. The recording of the webinar will be made available after the event.

The webinar will be held using Skype for Business software. For optimum performance, we recommend installing this software (Windows download or Mac download), but the webinar can also be accessed via telephone or through an internet browser.
