Intended Use: The FCS is intended for use as a monomer in the production of polyester resins for use as coatings for metal substrates used in the manufacture of single-use food-contact articles or components of such articles, except for use in contact with infant formula and human milk (see Limitations/ Specifications).
Limitations/Specifications: The FCS may be reacted with monomers listed in 21 CFR 175.300 (b) (3) (vii) (a, b, c, and d) and polybasic acids and their anhydrides, monobasic acids, polyhydric alcohols, and monohydric alcohols that are subject of an effective FCN for use as components of polyester coating resins. The FCS may be used at a maximum level not to exceed 19.4 percent by weight of the final coating. The FCS may contact all food types under Conditions of Use A through H, as described in Tables 1 and 2. The FCS will not be used in contact with infant formula or human milk.
