Compounds for the food industry

LUVOCOM® > Markets > Food industry

There are many applications for plastics in the food processing industry. They involve objects for both one-off and repeated use, such as transport containers, tools, scrapers, conveyor belts, casings and machine elements. The requirements on such parts are rising continuously. This is caused by intensified health and safety regulations and also by increasing technical requirements for the applications.

Requirements on current materials:

  • Chemical resistance
  • Strong and impact-resistant
  • Wear-resistant
  • Detectable
  • Easy to process
  • Free of ingredients harmful to health
  • Compliant with the regulations for plastics in contact with foodstuffs

LUVOCOM® offers such materials and is working continuously on the development of new tailor-made solutions for this market. One example is carbon-fibre compounds compliant with Commission Regulation (EU) No. 10/2011 (plastic materials and articles intended to come into contact with food) This means that materials are available for applications in the food sector with a high mechanical strength and antistatic properties and in different colours as well.

Additional solutions such as antibacterial in combination with antistatic and detectable are possible. Oriented towards the market needs and the wishes of our clients, we are continuously developing new products that offer antibacterial, antistatic or detectable properties on the basis of many polymers.
