This European Standard specifies test methods for the determination of the overall migration into fatty foodsimulants from plastics materials and articles, by total immersion of test specimens in a fatty food simulant at anytemperatures above 5 C up to and including 175 C for selected times.When some plastics are tested by the methods in EN 1186-2, EN 1186-4, EN 1186-6, EN 1186-8, prEN 1186-12and EN 1186-13, the soxhlet extraction process does not achieve complete recovery of the absorbed olive oil fromthe test specimens. In this method, the olive oil is released from the plastics test specimens by dissolving them inchloroform, toluene, xylene or tetrahydrofuran.This method is suitable for plastics when exposure to olive oil is by total immersion as described in EN 1186-2, in acell, as described in EN 1186-4, in a pouch, as described in EN 1186-6, and by filling, as described in EN 1186-8and to tests carried out at low and high temperature, as described in prEN 1186-12 and EN 1186-13.This is provided the plastics are soluble in chloroform, toluene, xylene or tetrahydrofuran and insoluble in methanoland that whenever prEN 1186-2 is referred to in this method the appropriate clause of the relevant part of EN 1186is substituted.The method can also be suitable for plastics which are only partially soluble in chloroform, toluene, xylene ortetrahydrofuran and insoluble in methanol.
