Quilon®: Versatile and Natural Release Treatments

Quilon, Zaclon’s Chromium+3/Fatty Acid Release Treatments, have been used in multiple applications since their development in the 1950’s. Quilon finds use in the Commercial Bakery as a treatment to paper intended for Pan Liner to additives in printing inks used in Food Contact applications. Quilon also finds use as a treatment to the inside lining of sausage casings to allow faster processing and as the main release treatment for tee shirt appliques.

Quilon is FDA approved for use for incidental food contact, as well as, being Kosher Certified. As Quilon contains 100% Chromium+3, the essential nutrient form of Chromium, it is edible. The Chromium+3 in Quilon has been found to help build muscle, reduce fat, improve stamina, lower cholesterol and help regulate blood glucose levels. Chromium+3 is found naturally in soil and is non-toxic. None of the Chromium+3 in Quilon is ever converted to the hazardous Chrmoium+6 version.

Quilon treated products, when Quilon is properly applied, are perfectly safe for disposal via landfilling or burning.
