FCN No. 1769

Dover Chemical Corporation

According to Section 409(h)(1)(C) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, food contact substance notifications (FCNs) are effective only for the listed manufacturer and its customers. Other manufacturers must submit their own FCN for the same food contact substance and intended use.
Food Contact Substance: Phosphorous acid, triphenyl ester, polymer with α-hydro-ω-hydroxypoly[oxy(methyl-1,2-ethanediyl)], C10-16 alkyl esters (CAS Reg. No. 1227937-46-3)
Notifier: Dover Chemical Corporation
Manufacturer/Supplier: Dover Chemical Corporation
Intended Use: As a thermal stabilizer in polymeric food contact articles. The FCS is not intended for use in substances in contact with infant formula and human milk (see Limitations/Specifications).
Limitations/Specifications: For use at levels not to exceed 0.20% by weight in linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE), high density polyethylene (HDPE), polypropylene (PP), and high impact polystyrene (HIPS) used as components of polymeric food contact articles in contact with all types of food under Conditions of Use A through H. The FCS may be used in conjunction with triisopropanolamine (CAS Reg. No. 122-20-3) at a maximum use level of 1.5% by weight of the FCS. The FCS is not for use in contact with infant formula and human milk because such uses were not included as part of the intended use of the substance in the FCN.
