USDA & FDA Approvals
Most Synfluid® PAOs are both NSF H1 and HX-1 registered. These products are acceptable as a lubricant with incidental food contact (H1) for use in and around food processing areas. Such compounds may be used on food processing equipment as a protective anti-rust film, as a release agent on gaskets or seals of tank closures, and as a lubricant for machine parts and equipment in locations in which there is a potential exposure of the lubricated part to food. The amount used should be the minimum required to accomplish the desired technical effect on the equipment. If used as an anti-rust film, the compound must be removed from the equipment surface by washing or wiping, as required to leave the surface effectively free of any substance, which could be transferred to food being processed.
Furthermore, they may be used as components of nonfood articles intended for use in contact with food, pursuant to the provisions of 21 CFR 178.3620(b)(1). Synfluid® PAOs also meet the Food and Drug Administration technical white oils specifications as described in 21 CFR 178.3620(b)(1).
