AIJU is currently developing a “Systematic Review of the impact of Non-intentionally added substances (NIAS) in food-contact plastics – CONTROLNIAS”, which aims to identify these substances and their incidence on raw materials and/or processes used in the field of plastics for contact with food. It is intended to guide companies through the NIAS control process by means of actions focused on the identification and characterization of potential migrants from plastic materials. This R&D project is funded by IVACE and cofounded by the ERDF funds from the ERDF Operational Programme 2014-2020 for Valencian Community (Ref. IMDEEA/2017/74).
EUROSTARS Project. The new Directive 2009/48/EC on the safety of toys establishes legislative limits to the bioavailability of certain elements regarded as toxic by means of the migration of the plastic matrix in toys or childcare articles. In order to quantify the migration, it is necessary to develop several analytical techniques that must be validated to ensure the accuracy of the results. A simple procedure for that validation consists in comparing the results with an appropriate reference that confirms their accuracy. Regarding migration tests, the best way to achieve this is the use of certified reference materials.
In cooperation with AIJU and IISG, we developed a project in order to obtain certified reference materials for the migration tests of the elements present in toys and childcare articles provided in the Directive 2009/48/EC.
Both the design and the corresponding quality controls of each and every of our products are conducted in our laboratory. Besides, the laboratory also takes part in the after-sales customer support, providing a clear and straightforward view in order to solve any technical problem in a quick and effective way. During the quality control processes, potential color deviations are analyzed using software and spectrophotometer, as well as a visual inspection and exposure to different types of light.
The quality control process is in fact a redundant procedure, since it ensures the quality of the manufactured product. Potential color deviations are analyzed in the laboratory using software and spectrophotometer. Besides, these color deviations are inspected by 2 expert technicians and exposed to different types of light.
We have a team of engineers and laboratory technicians with expertise in the plastic coloring and additivation areas, together with the most advanced design, analysis and manufacturing methods of masterbatches for technical plastics.
Colortec complies with the requirements laid down in the following standards:
Colortec has been certified by AENOR as a company whose Quality Management System meets all the requirements of the Standard ISO 9001:2015. Besides, we have been awarded with the Product Quality Label of the Toy Technology Institute, AIJU.
We are working diligently in order to comply with national and international plastic-related standards, such as REACH, the RoHS Directive, the Toy Safety Regulation, the Food Safety Regulation, the Resolution AP(89)1, Directive 2000/53/EC and any other standard or legal requirements that our clients should want our products to meet. All our additives, pigments and colorants in powder and masterbatch for plastics have their corresponding documentation attached, which guarantees the compliance with the standards requested by the client.
