Adhesives used in the covering and lining of component parts comply with regulation 21 CFR 175-105 on the American F & DR register (indirect food additives adhesive).

In certain processes an acrylic based double sided tape is used to attach components to each other. This tape is not included in the above regulation. It is however classed as non hazardous and is odourless. In normal usage it would not come into direct contact with any contents.

We do not check as to whether materials supplied to us by our customers comply with the aforementioned and would assume they conform to the appropriate standard.
