Coumarone-indene-resin


Explanation:
Also Indene-coumarone resin

2,3-Benzofuran is a colorless, sweet-smelling, oilyliquid made by processing coal into coal oil. It may
also be formed during other uses of coal or oil. 2,3-Benzofuran is not used for any commercial purposes. Rather, the part of the coal oil that contains 2,3-benzofuran is made into a plastic called COUMARONE-INDENE RESIN. This resin resists corrosion and is used to make paints and varnishes. The resin
also provides water resistance and is used in coatings on paper products and fabrics. It is used as an adhesive in food containers and is in some asphalt
floor tiles. The resin has been approved for use in food packages and as a coating on citrus fruits. We do not know how often the resin is used or whether
any 2,3-benzofuran in the coating or packaging gets into the food.
