Morgan Introduces Food-Safe Laboratory Porcelain

October 20, 2017

Morgan’s range of glazed laboratory porcelain tubes has been awarded food safety approval, according to both U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) guidelines and the German standard DIN 51032.
Morgan Advanced Materials recently announced that it is reportedly the first manufacturer to introduce specialist food-safe laboratory porcelain for food packaging. Morgan’s range of glazed laboratory porcelain tubes has been awarded food safety approval, according to both U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) guidelines and the German standard DIN 51032. The latter is based on the EU guideline 84/500/EWG. This certification guarantees a solubility level of lead and cadmium below standards set by these governing bodies.
This development reportedly offers a lower corrosion alternative to traditional stainless steel and polymer materials, which are currently widely used. Manufactured using Morgan’s proprietary ATP porcelain material, the company’s ceramic tubes are highly resistant to chemical corrosion, which can be caused by caustic soda, a product used to make the surfaces of packaging materials sterile.
