Aqueous as well as special solvent based ULTRALUBE® wax additives are used in can coating formulations particularly for increasing the slip and improving the scratch resistance. Nearly all of the types offered for this application comply with the requirements of FDA 175.300 regarding to the active solids.

1. Raw materials fulfil requirements of FDA 175.105.
2. Raw materials fulfil requirements of FDA 175.300.
3. The active components used in ULTRALUBE® WL-types are compliant to FDA 175.300 but the solvent (2-butoxyethanol), which is compliant to FDA 175.105 and 176.210, is not listed on 175.300. The above mentioned products could be used safely in compliance to 175.300 provided that the solvent is totally eliminated from the coating by the drying or curing process.
4. Like 3., but limited to the use in sealing compounds for sealing can ends only.
N = non ionic, A = anionic, C = cationic, + = yes, – = no, n.a. = non applicable
These data are to be seen as typical and should not be considered as specifications.
