FCN No. 1076

 
Return to Listing
 
Food Contact Substance:  Ethylene-vinyl acetate-vinyl alcohol (EVOH) copolymers modified with up to 8 mol% 1,2-epoxypropane (CAS Reg. No. 482589-30-0).
 
Notifier:  Kuraray Company, Ltd.
 
Manufacturer:  Kuraray Company, Ltd.
 
Intended Use:  As an internal, non food-contact layer separated from food by one or more layers having a suitable regulatory status for use in direct contact with food in single service and repeated-use food-contact articles both (1) as a stand-alone layer; or (2) at levels of up to 30 percent in blends with EVOH.
 
Effective Date:  06/23/2011
 
Limitations/Specifications:  1. The maximum thickness of the internal layer when the FCS is used alone will be 50 μm. The finished food-contact articles may be used in contact with Food Types I, II, III, IVA, IVB, V, VIA, VIB, VIC (up to 15 percent alcohol), VIIA, VIIB, VIII, and IX under Conditions of Use B through H as defined in Tables 1 and 2.
2. The maximum thickness of the internal layer when the FCS is used in blends with EVOH will be determined by the relationship: (50 μm)/(x), where "x" is the fraction of the FCS in the blend. The finished food-contact articles may be used in contact with Food Types I, II, III, IVA, IVB, V, VIA, VIB, VIC (up to 15 percent alcohol), VIIA, VIIB, VIII, and IX under Conditions of Use B through H as defined in Tables 1 and 2.
