TECAFORM® FG Blue is a new blue colored acetal designed specifically for the food industry. Blue is the only color that does not naturally show up in the food chain. Therefore, plastic parts fabricated from TECAFORM® FG Blue are much more visible to the in line optical scanning equipment in place in many food processing plants in the event that part failure occurs. TECAFORM® FG Blue is resistant to hot water, and typical cleaning chemicals, and it possesses good bearing and wear properties. Its blue color makes it more visible than standard grades. TECAFORM® is commonly used as bushings, rollers, wear strips and other applications requiring a combination of strength, low moisture absorption, chemical resistance and dimensional stability. TECAFORM® FG Blue is used in a wide variety of food industry applications requiring good strength and toughness, dimensional stability, wear resistance and the ability to operate in a wet enviornment with little absorption. Material handling, filling and bottling equipment are some of the common machines utilizing TECAFORM®’s combination of properties. Typical applications are gears, wear strips, bushings, pump parts, fittings, and rollers.
