Materials solutions for the food industry

Greater safety in production

There are many applications for plastics in the food processing industry. They involve objects for single 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 in connection with the applications.


Material requirements:

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

We offer such materials and are 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.

Another example is detectable compounds. Even smaller particles or fragments can be located using metal or X-ray detectors.
