TU U 24.3-24514086-015:2006

There is a conclusion of the State Sanitary and Epidemiological Expertise..

The enamel is a suspension of rutile titanium dioxide, excipients in a mixture of an epoxy-phenol composition.

Enamel white EMALEKS - F is recommended for the inner coating of canning containers.

EMALEKS-F is used as a protective inner coating for cans that come into contact with food.

Recommended coating - 12-14 g/m2 on a dry residue.
The drying temperature is 170-175 °C.
The drying time is 10-12 minutes.
