California Prop 65
This product may contain two chemical substances at very low levels (less than 1 ppm) which are known to the State of California to cause cancer and/or reproductive toxicity under California Proposition 65. These substances are:
Di-n-butyl phthalate (DnBP) or simply dibutyl phthalate (DBP) (CAS# 84-74-2) – reproductive toxin
Di(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP) or di-octyl phthalate (DOP) [CAS# 117-81-7] – carcinogen and reproductive toxin
DBP and DEHP are not intentionally added or used in the production of this product (see Phthalate section of the RAPIDS). However, there is potential for trace level DBP and DEHP contamination, because both are impurities in diisobutyl phthalate (DIBP), which is a minor component of the catalyst system used to make the base resin in this product. Calculated estimates confirmed by testing of several resins indicate a potential total residual phthalate (all phthalates) content of less than 10-15 ppm (parts per million). Further testing with food simulants, per general conditions of use as established in European Union Regulation 10/2011/EC did not detect any phthalate migration at a detection sensitivity of 20 ppb (parts per billion) (0.02 parts per million or 0.02 mg/kg). A worst case estimate of the amount of DBP or DEHP that could potentially migrate from the resin is calculated to be less than 10 ppb (parts per billion) each. Under Proposition 65, DBP has a maximum allowable dose level (MADL) of 8.7 micrograms per day. The DEHP MADL for intravenous exposure is 4200 (adults), 600 (infant boys, age 29 days- 24 mos.) and 210 (neonatal infant boys, age 0-28 days) and for oral exposure is 410 (adults), 58 (infant boys, age 29 days- 24 mos.) and 20 (neonatal infant boys, age 0-28 days), all values in micrograms per day. DEHP has a no significant risk level (NRSL) of 310 micrograms per day.
It is the responsibility of the California business owner to develop his or her own regulatory compliance plan.
This product may contain two chemical substances at very low levels (less than 10 ppm), due to impurities in a manufacturing process aid, which are known to the State of California to cause cancer and/or reproductive toxicity under California Proposition 65. These substances are:
Ethylene oxide (CAS# 75-21-8) - carcinogen and reproductive toxin
1,4-Dioxane (CAS# 123-91-1) – carcinogen
Under Proposition 65, for carcinogenicity, ethylene oxide has a no significant risk level (NSRL) of 2 micrograms per day, and for reproductive toxicity, ethylene oxide has a maximum allowable dose level (MADL) of 20 micrograms per day. For carcinogenicity of 1,4-dioxane, the NSRL is 30 micrograms/day.
It is the responsibility of the California business owner to develop his or her own regulatory compliance plan.

Ozone Depleting Substances
The ozone-depleting substances (ODS), listed in the Annexes I & II of the Regulation ( EC ) No 1005/2009 of 16 September 2009, are not intentionally used in the manufacture of or formulation of this product.
Materials listed in the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 (Class I, CFC’s and Class II, HCFC’s, Halons and the solvents, carbon tetrachloride and 1,1,1-trichloroethane) are not intentionally used in the production of this product.
Phthalate plasticizers are in general used in specific non-olefinic resin systems to soften these resins and make them flexible. When phthalate plasticizers are added, they can constitute up to 50% of the resultant plastic material. Polyolefins do not require the use of plasticizers to make them soft and flexible. No phthalates plasticizers, such as di(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP) or di-octyl phthalate (DOP) [CAS# 117-81-7], di-iso-nonyl phthalate (DINP) [CAS# 28553-12-0], di-iso-decyl phthalate (DIDP) [CAS# 26761-40-0], di-butyl phthalate (DBP) or di-n-butyl phthalate (DNBP) [CAS# 84-74-2], butyl benzyl phthalate (BBP) [CAS# 85-68-7] and di-n-octyl phthalate (DNOP) [CAS# 117-84-0], are intentionally used in the formulation of this product. However, a phthalate compound, diisobutyl phthalate (DIBP) [CAS# 84-69-5], could be used in the manufacturing process as a “technical support agent” (as defined by the European Union), i.e. a minor component of the catalyst system. This is typical of polypropylene and polybutene resins produced with high mileage catalysts. Impurities in the “technical support agent” and catalyst system include DBP (or DNBP), DEHP (or DOP), diethyl phthalate (DEP) [CAS# 84-66-2] and isobutyl ethyl phthalate (IBEP) [CAS# 94491-96-0]. Testing of several resins has resulted in the identification of the overall residual phthalate content no more than 10-15 parts per million. Further testing with food simulants (per EU Regulation 10/2011/EC) has resulted in phthalates not detected at a sensitivity of 20 parts per billion (0.02 parts per million). To put these results in perspective, plastic materials that require phthalate plasticizers, referred to above, can have up to 500,000 parts per million (50%) of the phthalate plasticizer in them.
