Return to Listing
Food Contact Substance:  Silicone acrylate resins produced by the addition of omega-hydroxyalkenes and/or propenyloxy-2,3-dihydroxypropane, mono- or diester with acrylic acid, acetic acid, or other saturated monocarboxylic acid, to dimethyl polysiloxane, methylhydrogen polysiloxane, or dimethyl-methylhydrogen polysiloxane. The cured resins may include substances permitted for use by regulation in 21 CFR 170-189, substances generally recognized as safe, substances used in accordance with prior sanction approval, and the following substances as photoinitiators: 2-hydroxy-2-methyl-1-phenyl-1-propanone (CAS Reg. No. 7473-98-5) and/or oligomeric -2-hydroxy-2-methyl-1-[4-(1-methylvinyl)phenyl]-1-propanone (CAS Reg. No. 163702-01-0). The total photoinitiator levels shall not exceed 3 percent by weight of silicone acrylate resin in coatings.
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 1.3 milligrams per square inch (mg/in2), in contact with all food types under conditions of use E, F, G, and H as defined in Table 2.
Effective Date:  06/07/2000
Limitations/Specifications:  The resins shall be cured by the use of electron beam or 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).
