EFSA Further Expands Food-Contact Approvals for Addivant’s Nonylphenol-Free Antioxidant, WESTON® 705

DANBURY, Conn., May 24, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Addivant™, the world leading supplier of liquid phosphite antioxidants for plastics, has announced that the European Food Standards Agency (EFSA) has further expanded the approval for the use of Addivant’s  nonylphenol-free stabilizer, WESTON® 705, to an even broader range of food-contact applications.

This expansion by EFSA increases WESTON® 705’s Specific Migration Limit (SML) by a factor of 2 to 10mg/kg. This makes WESTON® 705 the perfect stabilization solution for the most demanding food packaging applications such as fatty food or alcohol content packaging. Tested against the newest and most stringent food-contact standards, WESTON® 705 is the only antioxidant for plastics with a fully tested Non-Intentionally Added Substances profile.

“Regulatory bodies are actively restricting migration limits on all packaging components, and are using new toxicological standards that make it extremely difficult for a new additive to be launched in food-contact applications,” said John Steitz, Addivant’s CEO. “This expansion of the migration limit for WESTON® 705 is yet another confirmation of its unique safety profile, making WESTON® 705 the safest new liquid antioxidant developed over the last 20 years.”

About WESTON® 705
Already approved in more than 180 countries for food-contact packaging, WESTON® 705 is the only nonylphenol-free liquid phosphite antioxidant alternative with food- contact approvals in the U.S., Canada, Europe, and China. This enables resin producers and packaging manufacturers to employ a single, global solution for Consumer Packaged Goods for customers looking to stay ahead of the regulatory curve. The result of more than seven years of research and investment, WESTON® 705 is the most thoroughly tested new plastic antioxidant on the market today.
