FDA Extraction by ASTM D 4754 (at 160 Degrees Fahrenheit/2 hours) ASTM D 4754-98 - Standard Test Method for Two-Sided Liquid Extraction of Plastic Materials Using FDA Migration Cell

This test procedure outlines the use of the FDA migration cell in the extraction of components and permits quantitation of individual migrants from plastic materials by appropriate extracting of liquids, including food-stimulating solvents and liquid foods. It allows for a two-sided, liquid extraction test for plastic materials that can be formed into disks, sheet, or film. Additionally, this test procedure has been applied to a variety of migrant/polymer systems in contact with numerous food stimulants and foods. This has been shown to yield reproducible results under the conditions for migration tests requested by the FDA.
