In-depth investigations of the migration behavior of TPE with different raw material compositions have enabled us to develop application-specific compounds for food packaging. These new TPE developments expand the application and design possibilities for compound flexibility to a maximum. Risk minimization and time saving by exact calculation of the migration behavior give optimization potential.

Target applications of these special compounds:

  • food boxes
  • dosing valves and other applications in contact with food, especially fatty foods


  • Large processing window to realize filigree sealing geometries
  • Compounds of the CM1 and CM2 series are meeting the following requirements
    • Regulation (EU) No 10/2011
    • US FDA CFR 21
    • China GB4806-2016
    • EN71-3
  • Multi-component injection molding with polypropylene and polyethylene  
  • REACH and RoHS compliant
  • High quality surfaces
  • Adhesion to PP
  • No latex, PVC, phthalates or heavy metals added
  • Diverse coloring options possible 
  • Recyclable
  • Comprehensive service with regard to regulatory issues
  • Established and commercialized in various packaging solutions, such as dosing valves and gaskets


On behalf of KRAIBURG TPE, the independent testing and certification body Institute cyclos-HTP has successfully investigated and confirmed the compatibility of selected TPS materials in the recycling stream for high density polyethylene (HDPE) and polypropylene (PP).


Previously, it was assumed that TPS was not recyclable in the waste stream. This assumption could be disproved for selected products from KRAIBURG TPE and therefore no longer applies to compounds from the competence leader. According to the latest findings, compatibility in the PP and HDPE stream with products from KRAIBURG TPE has been proven and confirmed. This unique selling point is continuously being extended to the product range.



  • In this whitepaper, interested parties learn everything about the suitability of materials for food contact applications and the required migration testing in terms of Regulation (EU) No. 10/2011.
  • However, testing with the intended food simulants is not feasible in every case, or in some cases the testing leads to the destruction of the material or overestimates the actual migration.
  • Testing laboratories in particular benefit from the knowledge gained by KRAIBURG TPE, which makes it easier to detect the migration of TPS in fatty foods.
