With regards to the suspicion that GLYMO ( [3-(2,3-epoxypropoxy)propyl]trimethoxy silane, CAS No 2530-83-8, FCM 1068 ) has genotoxic potential FEICA recommends that its members substitute GLYMO in 2020 in applications intended for food contact.
In order to get a better view of industry use of GLYMO and ensure that our responsibilities are met, FEICA would like to ask member companies to answer a short questionnaire (not more than 5 questions). The results will only be communicated in aggregated format and the identity as well as the name of the company of all respondents will be kept anonymous. We would appreciate your cooperation very much!
Although this recommendation is not strictly confidential we would advice you to not circulate it widely at this moment as it may cause unnecessary concern.
