CheMigrator® is a new tool that can help you designing packaging materials, as for example food contact materials (FCM) and materials used in medical devices.
It can also be a valid tool to
document the compliance of your material with rules and standards on FCM and
CheMigrator® is an Excel based tool for the evaluation of migration of substances from materials. The calculation of migration is based on data on substances and materials.
The tool contains two databases:
Once the material and the substance of interest are selected, it is possible to calculate the related diffusion and partition coefficients or to insert experimental data. Then the degree of migration of the selected substance from the material of interest can be calculated.
The output is a short report where the used input information is summarized together with the calculated concentration in the substrate, a comparison of the substance SML, if available, and the degree of leaching. These information can be exported as a document (e.g. .doc format).
NB. The current version of ChemMigrator® contains a limited number of substances and materials. The selection will be expanded over time.
CheMigrator® has been developed by DHI and financed by the Danish Agency for Research and Innovation.
A webinar at December 12, 2018 on migration of substances from food packaging was helt. The presenters were Helle Buchard Boyd and Dorte Rasmussen. The recorded webinar can be seen here. Click on the "Movie viewer" to see the webinar.
