Development of new bisfenol A –free varnishes for metalic food packaging


The project develops new coating technologies for metals used in food packaging that are able to substitute the current epoxy varnishes derived from BPA. This new technology should fulfil the technical requirements derived from tis application as well as the ones of economic and environmental viability. In addition, it should fulfil the entire existing legislation in the field of food packaging to assure its commercialisation. The final objective is the industrialisation of new resins that will be used as a raw material for the industrial formulation of new varnishes for the metallographic industry.
