Return to Listing
Food Contact Substance:  Siloxanes and silicones, di-Me, hydrogen-terminated, reaction products with acrylic acid and 2-ethyl-2-[(2-propenyloxy)methyl]-1,3-propanediol (CAS Reg. No. 155419-56-0). The cured resins may include the photoinitiator 2-hydroxy-2-methyl-1-phenyl-propanone (CAS Reg. No. 7473-98-5).
Notifier:  Goldschmidt Chemical Corporation
Manufacturer:  Evonik Corporation
Intended Use:  As coatings or components of coatings on polymeric substrates and on paper and paperboard, at a maximum level of 1.5 grams per square meter (g/m2), in contact with all food types under Conditions of Use E, F, G, and H as defined in Table 2.
Effective Date:  12/18/2003
Limitations/Specifications:  1) The resins shall be cured by the use of ultraviolet light such that the finished coating, when extracted with 50 percent ethanol at 100°C for 2 hours, yields total chloroform-soluble nonvolatile extractives not to exceed 0.02 milligram per square inch (mg/in2). 2) The photoinitiator should be used at a maximum level not to exceed 3 percent by weight of the silicone acrylate resin in coatings.
