Ketron® VMX Food Grade PEEK


Ketron® VMX Food Grade PEEK an EU 10/2011 and compositional FDA 21 CFR § 177.2415 compliant material  that offers extreme dimensional stability, and high strength and temperature resistance. Visual, metal, and x-ray detectable, Ketron® VMX Food Grade shapes can be easily traced by conventional metal and x-ray detection systems, allowing global food processors to safely avoid costly recalls caused by foreign contamination. Due to their superior resistance to wear and corrosion, Ketron® VMX Food GradePEEK components are favored for applications in the food processing and packaging industry such as pistons, manifolds, valves, and mixing vessels.
