DIOFAN® A 050 is a standard grade PVDC latex for coating on various substrates. It is generally used as a topcoat on paper, cardboard and as a coating on plastic films.Additional Information: PROCESSING - DRYING - DIOFAN® A 050 exhibits excellent mechanical stability that allows it to be processed with different coating techniques, Including reverse gravure roll and air knife coating systems. - When coating plastic films, DIOFAN® A 050 should be formulated with wax and silica in order to improve the blocking and slip properties of the finished coating. - A good quality coating requires adequate drying, since higher temperatures will result in better barrier properties. FOOD AND DRUG LEGISLATION - The monomers used for the production of DIOFAN® A 050 comply with the requirements of the EU Commission Regulation No 10/2011 of 14 January 2011. - All the components are listed in the European Resolution AP 2004 (1) (Surface coating intended to come into contact with foodstuffs). - DIOFAN® A 050 complies with U.S. FDA chapters 21 CFR 175.105, 175.300, 176.170, 176.180 and 177.1630. - The monomers used for the production of DIOFAN® A050 comply with the Regulation (EC) 1907/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 18 December 2006 concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH). - SolVin will provide necessary certification upon request by its customers. ISO CERTIFICATION - The implemented management system for the production, internal transfer and delivery, design and development of DIOFAN vinylidene chloride copolymers (PVDC) produced in Tavaux has been assessed and found to meet the requirements of ISO 9001: 2008, ISO 14001: 2004 and OHSAS 18001: 2007.Information provided by Solvay Specialty Polymers.
