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.

"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.
