FDA Compliant Plastics for Food Packaging MachineryFDA Compliant Plastic for Your Machines

On top of improving performance and reducing downtime, you face an additional challenge with food manufacturing and packaging machinery — keeping all the equipment you make or maintain compliant with food-safety regulations.

The solution: Performance plastics can help you accomplish all of the above.

From acetal pump and valve parts to UHMW chutes and hoppers, many of the plastics that already enhance the efficiency and longevity of machines come in grades that comply with one or more of the FDA’s guidelines for direct food contact at room temperature. When extreme temperatures or chemicals are involved, call on high-performance materials like PEEK to perform in demanding environments.

Use FDA compliant plastics for these and many other applications:

  • Chute liners
  • Cutting boards and prep surfaces
  • Mixer components and scraper blades
  • Feed screws, idler sprockets, and star wheels
  • Filler pistons
  • Guide rails/wear strips

Let’s work together to reduce regulatory risk.

In addition to stocking all the plastic sheet, rod, and tube you may need, we can supply fabricated parts to your design requirements, and provide a full range of tapes, adhesives, sealants, tubing and hose, and other accessories.
