valPure® V70 non-BPA Epoxy
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.
