The goal in the food and beverage production & packaging industry is to deliver high quality, healthy and safe products. Meeting international standards is important in a highly regulated market. When these standards are not met, it can quickly become a major threat to the business. A product recall could turn into the worst case scenario for a manufacturer. Producers can use metal detectors to prevent contamination of food caused by breakage or wear of equipment parts. Replacing equipment parts with engineering plastics can improve production speed or extend productive cycles. The growing demand for polymer materials as a replacement of metal parts presents strong demand for new and improved, metal detectable plastics.

Types of Metal Detectable

Metal Detectable Acetal

This copolymer acetal grade, containing a metal detectable additive, has been specifically tailored for use in the food processing and packaging industries where it can easily be traced by the conventional metal detection systems installed to detect contamination of the foodstuffs (results may vary depending on the sensitivity of the metal detection system used).

Metal Detectable Acetal
Metal Detectable UHMW PE

Metal Detectable UHMW PE offers a lightweight, chemical and impact resistant, FDA compliant and metal detectable option. It delivers increased value resulting in longer production cycles, reduced contamination of food, lower maintenance, and operating costs.

Metal Detectable UHMW PE
Metal Detectable Parts

Acetal is a rigid, strong material that is available in copolymer and homopolymer compounds. Its properties include low moisture absorption, good chemical resistance and good dimensional stability

Unital SFX-0102M

Unital® SFX-0102M extruded thermoplastic shapes provide users with the strength and dimensional stability inherent in POM-based resins as well as enhanced stiffness provided by the addition of a metallic filler. Unital® SFX-0102M shapes offer low extractables for applications requiring FDA compliance and are especially well suited for metal detection in fodd processing applications.

Nylatron MD

This polyamide 6 grade, containing a metal detectable additive, has been specifically tailored for useNylatron MD in the food processing and packaging industries where it can easily be taced by the conventional metal detection systems installed to detect contamination of the foodstuffs (result may vary depending on the sensitivity of the metal detection system used).

Nylatron MD
Acetron MD

This acetal grade copolymer, containing a metal detectable additive, has been specifically tailored for use in the food processing and packaging industries where it can easily be traced by the conventional metal detection systems installed to detect contamination of the foodstuffs (results may vary depending on the sensitivity of the metal detection system used). Acetron MD presents good mechanical strength, stiffness and impact strength, and it also features a food contact compliant composition.

POLYSTONE M XDT

Polystone® M XDT has proven to be detected with a particle size as small as a 3mm cube. Running at speeds as fast as 250 feet-per-minute, this product can be detected and automatically sorted to a product hold area for further inspection. It works effectively with various types of packaging including metal cans, plastic and composite containers and glass jars.

POLYSTONE M XDT
Hydex 4101 UD

Hydex® 4101 UD blue has been specifically designed for the demanding environment of the food processing industry. For several years, the industry has been moving towards materials used in equipment design that are detectable in some way; either visually, by metal or x-ray detection, in order to improve food safety, and reduce the possibility of product contamination.
