Lamilux plastic sheets win HACCP hygiene standard

Thanks to their surfaces, Lamilux composites are resistant to germs and chemicals and are particularly easy to clean, properties that contribute to Lamilux composites being suitable for ceiling and wall cladding in the food processing industry, says the company.

This is now also proven by the HACCP certificate in the SSZ ("Splash or Spill Zone") classification. The SSZ classification means that the fibre-reinforced composites can be used in processing plants and storage rooms without any concerns as well as ensure that high hygiene standards are maintained there, according to Lamilux.

Since 2006, the EU has regulated that the only food that can sold or imported is that which has been treated in accordance with HACCP at all times.

Specifically, the HACCP regulation applies to all surfaces that come into contact with or are surrounded by food. The renowned certification body HACCP International specialises in the certification of these materials.

The HACCP International certification mark is aligned with the due diligence obligations of the world’s leading food safety standards and quality systems. Ten key criteria are investigated to ensure this full security. Certified products must meet all criteria, not just individual components.

Certified hygienic products include the following fibre-reinforced plastics: Lamilux AntiBac, Lamilux Embossed, Lamilux Super, Lamilux X-treme and more.
