The new addition to Michelman’s family of Michem Lube solutions is compliant with specific FDA and EU food contact regulations on a wide range of substrates including paper, film, and aluminum foil. It is APEO-free and formaldehyde-free and does not contain residual solvents. Michem Lube 160RPH is manufactured in the USA, Belgium, and Singapore, and is available globally.
