Sustarin® C MDT offers a solution to many food processing and packaging applications. Most of the food products that we consume every day come into contact with different machines during the manufacturing and packaging processes. If just a small part or component from any one of those machines finds its way into the food there can be serious health risks. 

SUSTARIN® C MDT has special additives that allow it to be traced by standard metal detectors and removed before causing further contamination. Quality assurance engineers at some of the largest food processing manufacturers in the country have already tested this product and found it to be highly effective. 

The important mechanical, thermal and chemical resistance properties remain unchanged in comparison to standard acetal. This engineering plastic is easily machined and has excellent dimensional stability for close tolerance parts. SUSTARIN C MDT complies with FDA regulations concerning direct contact with food. 

This material is offered in rods from 1/4" to 8" diameter and sheets from 3/8" to 4" thick in a brilliant blue color.
