Quadrant materials are commonly used in processing equipment and products requiring various types of regulatory compliance, whether it is with respect to procedures for
- handling or working with the materials in a safe manner (Product Handling Information Sheets)
- contact with food or drinking water (Regulations (EC) 1935/2004 and (EU) 10/2011, FDA, WRAS, KTW, ACS, ...)
- restrictions on the use of hazardous substances (RoHS, REACH, GADSL, customer lists, ...)
- biocompatibility (USP, ISO 10993)
or other specific regulatory requirements.
From the early stages of product development through the industrial manufacture of its stock shapes and finished products, Quadrant Engineering Plastic Products - in close co-operation with its raw material suppliers - routinely checks and works to assure its products meet regulatory requirements as much as possible. In this way, we can offer designers the broadest range of candidate materials.
The matrix to the right (click on it to enlarge) provides a quick overview of Quadrant's materials and the organizations that have verified their compliance. Below, a brief explanation of the organizations is provided. For specific compliance questions or questions about how a material may work in your application environment - give us a call or use our Quick Contact above.
This table gives the compliance of the raw materials used for the manufacture of the Quadrant Engineering Plastic Products' stock shapes with respect to their composition, as set out in the regulations that apply in the United States of America for plastic materials used for the fabrication of finished articles intended to come into contact with foodstuffs.
- RoHS (Restriction of the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical or Electronic Equipment)
Statements concerning the European Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 (REACH)
- In the view of the latest update of the ECHA Candidate List of Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC)
This database includes the Product Handling Information Sheets (PHIS) for the engineering plastics marketed by Quadrant EPP.
According to the “REACH” Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council dated 18 December 2006, a Safety Data Sheet shall be provided by the supplier of a substance or a preparation to the recipient of the substance or preparation (as stipulated in article 31 of the said regulation). Our semi-finished and finished products, however, are under REACH not considered as substances or preparations but as “articles” for which a Safety Data Sheet is not required. However, as a basic rule we want to continue supplying our customers with adequate information on the handling of our semi-finished and finished products and have therefore developed ‘Product Handling Information Sheets’ (PHIS) for our different materials.
