FDA Approval for Fabrics

Arville™ AS50 is the most recent fabric in our portfolio of technical textiles which has been granted full FDA approval for direct food contact use.

FDA (Food & Drug Administration) takes responsibility for determining whether and how manufactured materials may be used in contact with food products. The FDA provides certain specifications regarding composition, additives and properties – materials which meet these standards can then be stated as FDA compliant.

In addition, Arville already has a growing range of fabrics which are manufactured to be compliant with EU migration standards (EN 1935/2004), certifying them as food-grade and suitable for a wide range of applications within the food processing, pharmaceutical and filtration industries.

If any customers have an industry-specific testing requirement for their fabrics please feel free to discuss them with our sales team who will be happy to help.
