Emco Introduces F.D.A. Compliant Metal Detectable POM & UHMWPE Polymer for Food Processing
- Jun 20, 2011
Emco introduces two materials for food processing or packaging. The first is a metal detectable grade of Acetal. Acetal (POM) polymer has superb inherent mechanical properties in respect of dimensional stability, strength, stiffness and low wear characteristics. Acetal is suitable for replacing metal parts that are currently fabricated. This new metal detectable grade is color coded in a bright blue tint, it is F.D.A. compliant and remains easy to machine and is dimensionally stable. The product is easily sensed by standard metal detectors and is available in rod form 1/8" to 8" in diameter and sheet thickness from 3/8" to 8". Some typical applications are conveyor belt links or pins, food processing fabricated parts, scrapers,...
