FDA Adhesive & Coating Compliance
The Food & Drug Administration (FDA) does not approve adhesives and coatings for direct or indirect food contact. Instead, a manufacturer of these products can state that they are FDA compliant under specific conditions. Products suitable for food contact applications must meet certain requirements written in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). These FDA regulations are found in Title 21, CFR Section 175.105 (Adhesives) and CFR Section 175.300 (Resinous and polymeric coatings). In these regulations, there is a list of approved raw materials that can be used as components of adhesives and coatings that may have direct or indirect food contact.

In many cases, we have documentation from our suppliers to support the compliance of their materials. It is the responsibility of the end user to determine if our adhesive or coating compliance meets the specific requirements for their final product’s end uses.
