CVC Thermoset Specialties Earns Kosher Designation for Several Key Products from Chicago Rabbinical Council

MOORESTOWN, N.J., January 9, 2020— Preparing and packaging kosher foods is a strict and serious undertaking for kosher kitchens and food processing facilities. Processors and preparers must ensure that meat, dairy and pareve foods are adequately separated and all machinery is carefully cleaned and kosherized. In addition, kosher food processing facilities must ensure that the adhesives, sealants and coatings on food preparation surfaces are also certified kosher.

CVC Thermoset Specialties is proud to announce that several grades of the Hypro reactive liquid polymer (RLP) product line have been designated kosher by the Chicago Rabbinical Council (cRc).

When added to epoxy formulations, Hypro RLP reduces the formulation’s brittleness and likelihood of cracking. Hypro RLP is a low-molecular-weight synthetic rubber with chemical functionality. These reactive polymers impart rubber properties that can improve toughness, flexibility and impact resistance, making them ideal for applications such as coatings and sealants for food preparation surfaces. They can also improve thermal cycling properties, increase T-peel strength and improve adhesion to substrates.

Nine products are approved kashruth by cRc including:
Hypro 1300X16 ATBN–amine-functional butadiene-acrylonitrile copolymer
Hypro 1300X45 ATBN–amine-functional butadiene-acrylonitrile copolymer
Hypro 2000X162 CTB–carboxyl-functional butadiene polymer
Hypro 1300X18 CTBN–carboxyl-functional butadiene-acrylonitrile copolymer

All kosher-approved grades have been categorized as pareve. The full list of CVC’s kosher-approved products can be found here. For more information, contact product expert Dr. Hitesh Soni at 1-856-533-7699 or visit
