sustapeekSustapeek® XDT offers the best balance of properties of all thermoplastic materials,. In addition toSustapeek XDT outstanding mechanical properties, chemical ressitance and thermal performance, Sustapeek® XDT can withstand long term continuous temperatures of 480°F as well as exposure to hot water or steam with low moisture absorption – which makes it the material of choice for high-temperature applications int he food processing industry.

Sustapeek® XDT has been proven to be detected in a particle as small as a 3mm cube on production lines running as fast as 250 feet per minute. Repeated handling, cleaning and normal wear and tear of plastic component parts on food, beverage and pharmaceutical processing machinery increases the risk of a fragment breaking off and contaminating the product during processing.The need for traceable plastics, especially machined parts for filling, sorting and packaging machinery is critical due to strict FDA regulations regarding foreign materials and contaminants.
