BPA Could Get Canned
For decades, BPA-based epoxies were the coating of choice for metal food and beverage packaging. However, in recent years, there has been a push to move away from BPA. Sherwin-Williams understood that a replacement for BPA-based epoxies would need to uphold the high-speed application and pack performance that an epoxy delivered, while removing the use of BPA. The company developed a list of possible BPA replacements and then asked academic and state research bodies, NGOs and regulators to conduct their own research and validate the proposed materials — leading to the development of valPure® V70. Find out more about this next-generation coating that delivers an epoxy performance without using BPA.
