We are a printer of food contact packaging and use a number of water base coatings.  One of our coatings uses IPA to enhance drying time.  Testing has shown that very low levels of IPA exist after drying.  Anyone know if there is FDA documentation setting minimum levels (or none at all)?

 Dear leet,

 

Not my area but primary source of data presumably 21CFR parts 170-189, eg -

 

Attached File  Printing Inks _ Food Packaging Materials _ Food Packaging & Health _ Home - Food Packaging Forum.pdf   26.22KB   33 downloads

 

Maybe a good question for the ink supplier.? :smile:
