SML (mg/kg)
5 mg/kg
Restriction(s)
Average molecular weight not less than 2400 Da.

Residual content of morpholine ≤ 30 mg/kg, of N,N'-bis(2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperidin-4-yl)hexane-1,6-diamine < 15000 mg/kg, and of 2,4-dichloro-6-morpholino-1,3,5-triazine ≤ 20 mg/kg.

Notes on verification
V16 There is a risk that the SML could be exceeded from low-density polyethylene (LDPE) containing more than 0.3 % w/w of the substance when in contact with fatty foods.
Group name
