Metal Detectable Range

Metal detectable materials are increasing in popularity and are now commonplace in food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries, as in the event of a gasket or seal failure, any fragments of material can be picked up by metal detectors.

The materials contain food safe additives, which are visible to the detectors to ensure that particles do not enter the manufacturing chain or end product.

Generally metal detectable products are offered in blue as there are few blue foodstuffs, however we recognise that there are some processes which would benefit from a different coloured seal or different polymer, so in addition to commonly offered polymers such as Silicone and Nitrile, we uniquely offer many other grades of FDA/EC1935:2004 compliant elastomers such as FKM, PVC Nitrile, Polyurethane, Butyl, EPDM, Neoprene and Natural rubbers, together with different colour options. It should be noted though that as the metal detectable additives are dark in colour, the tone of these elastomers will be darker.
