PolyOne Helps Leading Infant Care Brand Meet Stringent Food Safety Standards and Deliver on Brand Promise

July 15, 2014

McHENRY, Ill.– PolyOne GLS Thermoplastic Elastomers recently worked with one of the largest infant care brands in Japan to develop a new feeding set for infants and toddlers. Using an advanced soft grip Versaflex™ TPE material in the bowl, cup and spoon, the manufacturer was able to meet critical food contact regulations in both Japan and China while simultaneously delivering an experience that reinforces their brand reputation.

“We worked closely with this customer to understand the application’s needs and were able to formulate a solution that meets today’s increasingly rigorous food-contact safety requirements,” said Charles Page, director of global marketing, PolyOne GLS Thermoplastic Elastomers. “At the same time, we helped the customer to create a distinctive product that is dishwasher safe and softer than silicone for a more child-friendly experience.

The PolyOne specialty formulation helped the customer meet both Japan’s Fatty Food Migration test and China’s Guobiao (GB) Standards test. In addition, this TPE material uses existing molds, eliminating the cost of new molds and reducing development time, enabling the manufacturer to enjoy more cost-efficient production without delay while driving brand growth.
