PPG Industries (NYSE:PPG) announced that TESLIN® Food-Grade substrate has been confirmed as fully compliant with the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act and all related food-additive regulations for food-contact applications. Offering the same durability, security and flexibility performance benefits as standard
Teslin substrate, Teslin Food-Grade substrate is ideal for use as traceability labels, like those pictured above, which enable food companies to combat food fraud and better safe-guard their supply chain. It can also be used for high-visibility brand packaging, because of its exceptional color and photo reproduction, and for tamper-resistant security labels printed with encrypted bar codes or quick-response (QR) codes.

PITTSBURGH, May 29, 2013 - PPG Industries (NYSE:PPG) announced that TESLIN® Food-Grade substrate has recently been confirmed as fully compliant with the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act and all related food-additive regulations for food-contact applications.

Michelle Welch, PPG business director, Teslin substrate products, said this revised and updated confirmation of U.S. Food and Drug Administration compliance permits PPG customers to use Teslin Food-Grade substrate for single- and repeated-use applications, under all operating conditions for which the substrate is technologically suitable, with all types of food and without limits to material amount.

"Customers in many industries have embraced Teslin substrate for its unique blend of durability and easy, high-quality printability," she said. "Teslin Food-Grade substrate now offers our customers an opportunity to grow their businesses by developing new and innovative ways to package, protect, label and display food goods."
