Compliance Scheme regarding products of Continuous Filament Glass Fibre (CFGF) used in Glass Fibre Reinforced Plastic (GFRP) intended to come into contact with food.
Glass fibre-reinforced plastics (GFRP) are composite materials made of a polymer matrix reinforced with glass fibres. The glass fibres therein are treated with a sizing to hold individual filaments together and to promote adhesion to the polymer matrix. Glass fibre-reinforced plastics are covered by Regulation (EU) No 10/2011. Until 31.12.2015, compliance of the sizing was […]
