Addivant™, the world leading supplier of liquid phosphite antioxidants for plastics, has announced that its nonylphenol-free stabilizer, WESTON® 705, has received formal approval from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for food contact use in styrene block polymers.

It covers the use of WESTON® 705 at levels up to 2000 ppm for food contact use in multiple types of styrene based systems such as SIS, SBS, SEBS and SIBS. This expands the food contact use of WESTON® 705 in styrene block polymers beyond the recent FDA approvals for repeat use articles intended for infant formula and breast milk.

“The FDA approval for food contact use in styrene block polymers opens a broad new range of food contact applications where customers have been seeking a high-performance liquid nonylphenol-free drop-in,” said John Steitz, Addivant’s CEO. “WESTON® 705 has been developed to surpass global regulatory standards providing a complete profile of its Non-Intentionally Added Substances (NIAS), allowing its customers to stay ahead of the food safety curve. We remain committed to further invest in the extension of our food contact approvals of WESTON® 705 in a broader range of polymers and elastomers.”
