3-Way Detectable Polymer Solutions

Food Safety x3: Blue, Metal Detectable, X-Ray Detectable

Prevent plastic contamination in food products with 3-way detectable shapes and parts. These food grade engineering plastics for industrial processing equipment are designed to reduce the risk of food recalls and brand damage. Each shape and part has all of the following characteristics: 

  • Visually detectable material (Blue plastic)
  • Metal detectable plastic (MD portfolio)
  • X-ray detectable plastic (XR portfolio)

Our engineering plastic shapes and parts are produced according to GMP and are based on food approved engineered materials that comply with the latest Global Food Contact Regulations. Our in-depth knowledge of global food safety legislation enables you to seamlessly incorporate solutions in your food processing equipment.

Metal Detectable Plastics

Mitsubishi Chemical Advanced Materials has developed a selection of polymer materials which are specially designed to trigger the rejection mechanisms on industrial food metal detectors, even in trace amounts. Manufacturers can choose from a wide range of metal detectable plastic materials, each offering different advantages for different applications.

  • keyboard_arrow_downKey material properties

    • MCAM’s metal detectable plastics offer improved wear characteristics for high-stress applications in food processing equipment.
    • Food metal detectors can reliably identify the material additives in MCAM’s metal detectable plastics in particles as small as 27 cubic mm, addressing the remaining risk of breakage or wear.
  • keyboard_arrow_downKey benefits

    • All polymer formulations in this portfolio are approved for food contact according to FDA and EU food regulations
    • Reduced risk of food contamination, resulting in lower risks for product recalls and brand damage
    • Heightened productivity through reduced downtime and lower equipment maintenance costs
