Standard Test Method for Nonvolatile Ultraviolet (UV) Absorbing Extractables from Microwave Susceptors


1.1 This test method covers the determination of relatively polar ultraviolet (UV) absorbing components that may migrate from microwave susceptor packaging into food simulants, such as corn oil and Miglyol 812.

1.2 This test method has been collaboratively studied using bilaminate susceptors constructed of paperboard, adhesive, and a polyethylene terephthalate (PET) susceptor. Adhesive and PET related compounds were quantitated using this test method.

1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.

1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use.
