Epoxy is a widely used coating type with an enduring track record of performance, manufacturability and brand protection. Traditionally, epoxy coatings were based on BPA. Products in the valPure V70 Series, however, are based on an epoxy resin platform not made with BPA.

The valPure V70 Series goes through a more robust development and safety testing protocol than required by international regulatory agencies. The "Safety by Design" process used by Sherwin-Williams is a product development framework modeled after preclinical pharmaceutical safety evaluation. Safety by Design emphasizes food packaging safety, international regulatory compliance and provides unparalleled coating solutions with market longevity.

Products in the valPure V70 series provide can makers with a choice of coating solutions and provide consumers with products they can trust. The valPure V70 Series products are non-BPA solutions designed for epoxy-like performance across food, beverage and household product segments and are approved internationally.

valPure non-BPA epoxy-based coating solutions for the following end uses:

More about valPure® NBPA Epoxy

  • Non-BPA*, V70 Series, designed for epoxy-like performance
  • Extensive testing demonstrates evidence for an absence of genotoxicity and endocrineactivity.
  • Globally relevant product offerings across many end use categories
  • Broad application in beverage, food and general packaging end uses
  • Thoroughly vetted starting materials
  • Designed for use with existing equipment, processes and product knowledge
  • valPure V70 production involves a type of bisphenol that is different from BPA and is eliminated by the end of the manufacturing process. This has been validated by independent tests showing no detection measuring down to 0.08 parts per billion (ppb).
  • The valPure V70 Series went through a more robust development and safety testing protocol than required by national and international regulatory agencies.

Safety by Design

Sherwin-Williams uses industry-leading standards and a Safety by Design framework modeled after the preclinical pharmaceutical safety evaluation process.  This leads to food-packaging safety and global regulatory compliance.  valPure NBPA Epoxy does not contain substances of very high concern.2

Food Contact Notifications (FCNs)

Other approvals

  • Materials are US FDA, Canada and EU compliant for food contact.3
  • Coatings and their components are compliant with US TSCA, Canadian DSL, EU REACH.3
  • Toxicological testing reviewed and accepted by international regulatory agencies.
  • All materials meet the current requirements of Prop 65.
  • All materials meet the requirements of CONEG (heavy metals).

Studies/Research

Summary

  • The initial screen of the Safety by Design process included a review of the literature, computational modeling, Quantitative structure–activity relationship (QSAR), and read-across for toxicity prediction. 
  • From this screen, a select few were chosen, based upon their predicted safety profiles, for further in-vitro polymer synthesis studies. 
  • Only the safest chemicals were chosen from the initial screen to develop valPure NBPA Epoxy. 
  • Extensive testing demonstrates evidence for an absence of genotoxicity and endocrine activity.
  • 3rd-party laboratory testing
