Compliant material solutions for the food industry
Producing food grade plastic compliant with the stringent requirements of FDA and European Food Contact regulations is a key requirement for thermoplastics machining operators in this field. Röchling offers this solution: alongside our standard engineering thermoplastic portfolio, we also offer a special portfolio of food contact materials, which meet the specific demands of food technology in terms of safety and performance.
MACHINABLE PLASTICS FOR THE FOOD INDUSTRY
POM-C natural acetal is an unfilled POM with a unique balance of physical properties not available in most other thermoplastics.
POM-C blue is colored brilliant blue in order to optimize the material's effectiveness in food plants that use optical detection equipment to identify unwanted particulates in the food product.
Polyetheretherketone (PEEK) - natural is a high performance, high temperature, semi-crystalline thermoplastic ...
Polyamide 6 is the most common extruded polyamide and offers a balanced combination of all typical characteristics of this group of materials. Damping properties and impact strength of the material deserve to be emphasized as much as high toughness even at low temperatures.
FOOD INDUSTRY CASE STUDIES
Needleblock for meat processing
Not only the components which come into direct contact with food should be made of materials which comply with food contact regulations. This block is a component of a fully automated system developed to enhance flavour and shelf life by saline injection using needles, so safety is an important requirement.
Food Scraper in safety with POM-C detectable
In the food industry, most filling machines use a scraper in the funnel to ensure a constant flow of the food. In this component for meat or sausage meat, the customer was used to making the scraper of POM-C natural, an acetal food grade, but decided to change to using POM-C ID blue in order to improve detection of any plastic contamination in food.
Bakery machine equipment branded and safe
For their machines, the company choose POM-C blue, which could stand out colour-wise, both to brand the company, but also to ensure quick detection of any plastic in the food during the production process.
