Elastollan® FC portfolio

The Elastollan® FC portfolio has been specially developed for the use in food contact applications and is often used in the food industry or in drinking water applications.

Conveyor belts or conveying hoses that are used as system components must not exude any critical substances which are transferred to food and could alter the taste, odor or composition of the food. BASF’s Elastollan® FC grades comply with both the guidelines in the EU legislation on food contact applications and the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) regulations. They are produced in accordance with the stringent safety standards of the GMP (Guidance for Good Manufacturing Practice 2023/2006/EG).

The Elastollan® FC portfolio consists of more than 20 products and concentrates and includes both ether- and ester-based grades. This comprehensive portfolio means that BASF can help customers to develop a wide range of TPU applications with food contact.
