CFSA Consults on Four New Varieties of Food-related Products

As per the notice released on Dec 9, 2021, China National Center for Food Safety Risk Assessment is now consulting on four new varieties of food-related products, including one new additive variety for food contact materials (FCM) and articles, and three new resins. Any opinions can be sent to biaozhun@cfsa.net.cn prior to Jan 7, 2022.

One FCM Additive

Name

CAS Number

Application Scope

Maximum Usage/%

SML/(mg/kg)

QM/(mg/kg)

Notes

Technique Necessity

Phosphoric acid, zirconium(4+ ) salt   (2:1)

13772-29-7

Plastic: PE, PP, PS, PLA; paints and coatings

1 (calculated as painting formula)

/

/

PP plastic materials and articles with this substance can be used for microwave heating.

 

This substance is used as an additive to improve the stretchability, impact resistance and flexural property of plastic materials and products, and to improve the abrasion resistance of paints and coatings.

Three New Resins

Name

CAS Number

Application Scope

Maximum Usage/%

SML/(mg/kg)

QM/(mg/kg)

Notes

Technique Necessity

2-Propenoic acid, polymer with butyl 2-propenoate, ethenyl acetate and 2-ethylhexyl-2-propenoate

35239-19-1

Bonding agent (indirectly contact food)

63

6 (in Acrylic acid terms); 12 (Vinyl   acetate); 0.05 (2-Ethylhexyl acrylate)

/

Bonding agents produced from this substance should be filled and stored at room temperature (including hot filling and pasteurization at T ≤ 70°C, t ≤ 2h or T ≤ 100°C, t ≤ 15min).

This substance is used as a base resin for aqueous adhesives for laminated packaging and labels that do not contact with foodstuffs directly and has a high cohesive strength.

1,4-Benzenedicarboxylic acid, 1,4-dimethyl ester, polymerwith decanedioic acid, 2,2-dimethyl-1,3-propanediol, and1,2-ethanediol

51382-28-6

Paints and coatings

40 (calculated as dried coating)

7.5 (calculated as 1,4-dicarboxybenzene); 0.05 (2,2-Dimethyl-1,3-propanediol); 30 (calculated as ethylene glycol)

/

Paints and coatings produced from this substance should not be used at the temperature over 121 ℃.

This substance is the main film-forming substance for coatings and is used in the coating of metal cans to provide good flexibility and barrier properties.

Polymer of 1,4-butanediol dimethacrylate, 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate, ethyl acrylate, acrylic acid, and styrene

/

Paints and coatings

92 (calculated as painting formula)

0.05 (1,4-Butanediol dimethacrylate); 0.1 (calculated as Methacrylic acid); 6 (calculated as Acrylic acid)

/

Paints and coatings produced from this substance cannot be used to contact baby food or breast milk.

This substance is the main film-forming substance of the coating and forms a protective coating on the inside of metal cans to improve corrosion resistance.
