Food Grade Certifications
- H1 Lubricants

- H3 Lubricants
- 3H Release Agents
- HT1 Heat Transfer Fluids
H1 Lubricants are for “Incidental Food Contact” and are safe to use on food-processing equipment. In particular, due to the wide range of applications H1 lubricants are the most popular type of Food Grade lubricant.
H2 Lubricants are for “No Food Contact” and are not safe to use on food-processing equipment. Specifically H2 lubricants are ideal for use in enclosed systems as a lubricant, release agent or anti rust film where there is no chance of direct food contact.
H3 Lubricants are inherently biodegradable and are additives which can be used in formulation with Food Grade Lubricants. In like manner these lubricants are considered “edible” and GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe) for human consumption in sunflower, corn or soybean oils. Additionally they are intended for equipment like conveyor belts, hooks and trolleys as a cleaner or rust preventative.
3H Release Agents are for hard surfaces in direct contact with edible products. These agents are ideal in applications where edible products need to remain “stick-free” from surfaces such as baking sheets, loaf pans, chopping boards or grills. 3H release agents are popular in cosmetic manufacturing and are recognized as the “non-adhering” agent.
HT1 Heat Transfer Fluids are for “Incidental Food Contact” and safe to use on food processor equipment. On the contrary, HT1 HTF’s are specifically for primary and secondary heating and cooling systems. In order to comply with the NSF requirements and FDA regulations, HT1 HTF’s are required to be formulated with specific ingredients according to 21 CFR Section 178.3570 or 21 CFR Part 172.
