Migration from printing inks in multilayer FCMs

Scientists analyze printing inks migration in multilayer materials; use of overprint varnish or placement under PET layer decreases migration of ink components but may introduce other migrants

Print-related food contaminants

Identity and set-off assessed for print-related contaminants by three different mass spectrometry methods; most compounds show evidence for set-off

Long-term migration from PVC coating

FDA scientists question utility of long-storage migration testing conditions; find increasing migration of benzoguanamine with longer storage

Oligomers from plastic FCMs reviewed

The diversity of oligomeric migrants increases with new (co)monomer varieties used in plastic production; quantitative analysis and toxicological evaluation are challenging
