Tecaform® UD Blue is the revolutionary new Ultra Detectable acetal copolymer designed specifically for Tecaform UDapplications in the food industry. High speed food production lines detect particulate matter in the food product one of three ways; Using optical scanners, metal detection equipment, or X-ray equipment Tecaform® UD Blue is the first engineering thermoplastic that will show up regardless of the scanning method used.
Tecaform® UD Blue is perfect for a great number of applications in the food industry. Whether you are looking at food processing, packaging, or conveying. Tecaform® UD Blue can be an important tool in avoiding costly food product contamination. Typical applications include filer valve and pump parts, forming plates and scraper blades, as well as bushings, bearings, cam followers and other parts.
