Note: Text based on automatic Optical Character Recognition processes. Please use the PDF version for legal matters

CLAIMS:

1 . A coating composition being substantially free of bisphenol A and reaction products thereof comprising:

(a) a resinous binder comprising:

(i) a polymer containing reactive functional groups,

(ii) an aminoplast curing agent containing functional groups that are reactive with the functional groups of (i), and

(iii) a monomeric phenol;

(b) a colorant.

2. The coating composition of claim 1 in which (i) is a (meth)acrylic polymer.

3. The coating composition of claim 1 in which (ii) is a condensate of benzoguanamine and formaldehyde.

4. The coating composition of claim 1 in which (iii) is a compound of the structure:


OH

where Ri is H, alkyl or alkoxy; R2 is H or alkyl, and R3 is alkyl.

5. The coating composition of claim 4 in which Ri is Ci to C4 alkyl or Ci to C4 alkoxy, R2 is hydrogen or Ci to C4 alkyl, and R3 is Ci to C4 alkyl.

6. The coating composition of claim 4 in which Ri is methyl or methoxy, R2 is hydrogen or C4 alkyl, and R3 is C4 alkyl.

7. The coating composition of claim 4 in which (iii) is a compound having the following structure:

including mixtures thereof.

8. The coating composition of claim 1 in which (a) and (b) are dispersed in aqueous medium.

9. The coating composition of claim 1 in which (i) is present in the coating composition in amounts of 20 to 50 percent by weight based on weight of resin solids in the coating composition.

10. The coating composition of claim 1 in which (ii) is present in the coating composition in amounts of 20 to 50 percent by weight based on weight of resin solids in the coating composition.

1 1 . The coating composition of claim 1 in which (iii) is present in the coating composition in amounts of 4 to 25 percent by weight based on weight of resin solids in the coating composition.

12. The coating composition of claim 1 which has a resin solids content of 15 to 20 percent by weight based on total weight of the composition.

13. The coating composition of claim 1 in which (b) is present in the coating composition in amounts of 10 to 20 percent by weight based on total weight of the composition.

14. A coated package or a portion thereof having a food or beverage-contacting surface comprising the coating composition of claim 1 applied to at least a portion of the food or beverage-contacting surface.

15. The coated package of claim 14 in which the package is an aluminum or steel container.

16. The coated container of claim 15 in which the container is a 2-piece or 3-piece can including a can end.

17. A method comprising:

(a) providing a substrate having a food or beverage-contacting

surface,

(b) applying the coating composition of claim 1 to the food or

beverage-contacting surface, and

(c) forming the substrate into a package before or after application of the coating composition.

18. The method of claim 17 in which the substrate is a metal sheet or a coil metal strip, each of which are subsequently formed into a can or a can end.

19. The method of claim 17 in which the metal substrate is a 2-piece can.
