Food grade foam
Our EVA and PE foams are made from resins, pigments and blowing agents that conform to AS2070-1999 this standard relates to the suitability for food contact.
It is recommended that if our foam will come in direct contact with a food product the end user needs to take sanitation precautions either by sterilization from ethylene oxide, pressure washing or light steam
Gardiner PE and EVA will not support bacterial growth however it should be noted that the cut surface of broken micro cells can hold contamination that require washing off.
When cut foam is used surface sealing by means of a hot air gun will also assist in contamination prevention.
