Bisphenol A (called BPA) has been the subject to studies and analysis by the European Community, which has banned its use from 2013 in childcare products and toys. It has been proved that, at very high doses, if assimilated, this element may be harmful for those who are in contact with it.
Independently of the decisions of the European Community, France has banned the presence of BPA in all MOCA products (materials and articles intended to come into contact with food), from January of 2015.
BPA was one of the elements present in Low Cure non-stick coatings, which are made of epoxy resin. The company, following the example and the demands of the French market, has decided to replace BPA in the formulation of these coatings, eliminating it for good from all Low Cure materials, although it was present in small quantities, so that this element is no longer present in any of its products. It has thus created a specific “BPA FREE” formulation of coatings.
This replacement element has also led to a great improvement in the quality of non-stick coatings because:
- It creates a barrier between the substrate of the baking mould and the coating, thus improving food contact and avoiding any kind of limitation in foods used during cooking.
- The non-stick properties are better and deliver higher performance.
