TECAPEEK Ultra Detectable (TECAPEEK UD Blue) was created with the food processing industry in mind because of its ability to withstand high heat and steam. Although, Tecapeek UD is also a good choice for other industries. In the food processing industry where food recalls have been an increasing problem, TECAPEEK UD blue offers the advantage of detectability by all three typical food product inspection technologies (optical, metal, x-ray detection) built right into one product. In addition, TECAPEEK UD also offers the high-performance advantages of excellent temperature, chemical and wear resistance.
