Intended Use: The FCS will be used as a component of articles used in contact with food for single- and repeat-use applications. (see Limitations/Specifications)
  1. For single-use articles: The FCS will be used at a maximum thickness of 2 mils (approximately 50 μm) in contact with all food types under Conditions of Use A through H and J.
