Stål för förpackningsändamål - Plåt avsedd för kontakt med livsmedel, drycker och djurfoder - Obelagd stålplåt (blackplate)
This document specifies the maximum content for alloying and residual elements (see Table 1) present in steel (usually called blackplate) used in the manufacture of packaging and packaging components or for coated steel which, as a finished product, are intended for use in direct contact with foodstuffs, products and beverages for human and pet food. For such use blackplate is normally coated but can be used uncoated for some fatty or dry products.
The main examples of use are:
-- tinplate and electrolytic chromium/chromium oxide coated steel for the manufacture of food and beverage cans ;
-- cans for conditioning foodstuffs (sugar, tea, cake, chocolate, pasta, etc.) ;
-- non-mineral oil drums, kegs, barrels.
The choice of material should be appropriate for the conditions of use.
This standard applies to cold-rolled strips in the form a coil or sheets.
This standard does not apply to categories of steel other than steel for packaging intended for use in contact with foodstuffs, products or beverages for human or animal consumption.
