Q. We are producing bins used to collect used cooking oil. The oil collected is used as a component in preparing animal feed. The customer asked me to provide a “Food Grade Certificate” for the powder coating material used. What should I ask my coater for? Thanks. J.G.
A. Powder coatings are available that can be used for this application. Tell your coater to ask for a Food & Drug Administration- or National Sanitation Foundation- (NSF 61) approved coating.
