X-Ray and Metal Detectable Plastics - Strengthen Your Defense Against Product ContaminationStrengthen Your Defense Against Product Contamination

If unwanted particles end up in a finished product or on a consumer’s plate, your company can face lawsuits, recalls, and permanent damage to its reputation.

Innovative detectable plastics can be identified by optical, x-ray, and metal detection systems — giving you a critical line of defense against product contamination.

Acetal, UHMW, and PEEK detectable grades are lightweight and can withstand chemicals, friction, and wear. They meet FDA and other requirements for food processing, bottling, packaging, and conveying machinery.

Consider using detectable plastics for:

  • Rollers
  • Bearing and bushings
  • Guide rails and wear strips
  • Gears and sprockets
  • Fillers
  • Pharmaceutical packaging
  • Pillow blocks
  • Scraper blades and mixer components

Let’s work together to reduce the threat of product contamination.

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, and other accessories.

Ask a Plastics Expert about plastic material properties, the impact of part geometry on performance, and more.

Optical, metal, and x-ray detection systems vary. It is the responsibility of the user to test and approve the detection of products due to variations in the detection systems and required sensitivity settings.
