Dover, OH - Dover Chemical Corporation has received expanded-use FDA clearance for Doverphos® LGP-11® antioxidant as a thermal stabilizer in polypropylene (PP) and high impact polystyrene (HIPS), used as components of finished food packaging and repeated-use articles in contact with all types of food under Conditions of Use A through H, at loading levels in polymer up to 2000 ppm.

This expanded food contact clearance is in addition to the existing clearance for Doverphos® LGP-11® antioxidant as a thermal stabilizer in single- and repeated-use linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) films and high density polyethylene (HDPE) articles in contact with all food types under Conditions of Use A through H, at loading levels in polymer up to 2000 ppm. Additional clearances also include use in adhesives and pressure-sensitive adhesive applications complying with 21 CFR 175.105 and 21 CFR 175.125, respectively, can-end cements complying with 21 CFR 175.300(b)(3)(xxxi), and repeated-use food-contact articles, at loading levels in polymer up to 1%.

Doverphos® LGP-11® is a proprietary polymeric liquid, high molecular weight phosphite that is suitable as an alternative to TNPP, or any other phosphite additive in any polyolefin application.  Doverphos® LGP-11® is also recommended for use in other resin systems such as SBS, SBR, urethanes and PVC. Doverphos® LGP-11® is unique in that it contains no alkylphenol components, has superior color hold, has low migration due to its polymeric nature, and is composed of biodegradable raw materials. 

“The fact that LGP-11® is not produced from alkylphenols provides benefits that are unprecedented by other phosphites on the market today,” noted Dr. Mick Jakupca, Director of Research and Development at Dover Chemical Corporation. “Most antioxidants are composed of or contain alkylphenols. Alkylphenols, as a general class of chemicals, are a focus of both consumer and regulatory organizations.  Doverphos® LGP-11® was engineered to offer the global plastics market a viable long-term alkylphenol-free alternative chemistry.

“Dover Chemical Corporation has a long history of developing truly novel products and processes that address the concerns of our customers and consumers. The polymeric nature of this product has routinely demonstrated the reduction and/or elimination of plate-out and blooming of the antioxidant in blown and cast film applications, which has been an industry-wide problem for decades.”

Matthew Fender, Business Manager of Polymer Additives, added: “Doverphos® LGP-11® was designed to meet long-term global market needs, and receiving additional food contact clearances by the US FDA is certainly an important milestone for all of us and for our customers.  The additional food contact clearance for both PP and HIPS applications will certainly allow our customer base to proceed with planned commercial-scale evaluations.”

Dover Chemical Corporation, a subsidiary of ICC Industries, on 5 July 2016, was granted a formal United States Patent on the chemistry upon which Doverlube LCS-10, our light colored sulphurised ester, is based.

This achievement is the end result of many months of laboratory investigation, development, and performance testing. The research has opened up a new area in synthesizing light color metalworking additives.

The inventors are Dr. Donald Stevenson, Mr. John Nussbaumer, and Mr. Louis E. Bona.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced yesterday a postponement until mid-2017 on production of mid (C14-17) and long C(18-20)-chain chlorinated paraffins.

The decision was disclosed by Maria Doa – Director, Chemical Control Division US EPA,  at a Metal Removal Fluids conference held yesterday outside Chicago where she was a keynote speaker.

She also confirmed that the deadline is for manufacture, not use, and that users will be able to continue using existing stocks after the 2017 date.

Dover, along with the Chlorinated Paraffins Industry Association (CPIA), has been working with industry trade associations, the Department of Defense, and congressional representatives to develop the case for retaining MCCPs/LCCPs versus the elimination of these products.  Going forward, the EPA has requested critical use data and replacement chemistries to define how they will ultimately treat the MCCP / LCCP chemicals.  Our focus will be to provide this information and continue the dialog with the USEPA toward a favorable resolution that best supports the environment AND the marketplace.

While the additional time granted by the EPA is very appreciated, we understand that additional work is needed, and we will use this additional time productively to advance an EPA compliant and market-friendly result.  We will be having further discussions with EPA in this process, and will certainly keep you informed of all developments.

We greatly appreciate all the support this issue has received from the many industry trade groups that have been involved.

If you have any questions, please contact your Dover Chemical sales manager or myself.
