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.

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."
