What is H1?

The H1 classification is the industry standard for lubricants intended for use in applications where there is potential for incidental food contact.

Such incidental contact is limited to a trace amount; it must not exceed 10 parts per million (0.001%), otherwise food is deemed unsafe for consumption.

H1 lubricant formulations may only contain certain base stocks, additives and thickeners as specified by FDA regulations 21 CFR 178.3750.

 

What is 3H?

H3 lubricants are typically used as a release agent in food production to clean and protect hooks, trolleys. grills and other such related equipment which will come into direct contact with food.

H3 lubricants may only contain edible oils that satisfy FDA 21 CFR 172.860 (such as corn, soybean or cottonseed oils), certain mineral oils that meet FDA 21 CFR 172.878 and oils generally recognised as safe (GRAS) under either FDA 21 CFR 182 or FDA 21 CFR 184.
