Improve Safety and Efficiency with our Advanced Food Safe Plastics

Our detectable, food safe materials and wear-resistant parts represent a significant leap forward in polymers for food processing applications.

From intake to handling to storing to packing, these high-performance engineering plastics will drive a wealth of benefits across all food production areas, improving sustainability and quality as well as unlocking a whole new set of opportunities for food contact applications. 


The world’s broadest portfolio of plastics approved for food contact

At Mitsubishi Chemical Advanced Materials, you’ll find precisely the food grade material you are looking for. No one else has such a wide selection of industry-leading products for the food industry and the expert advice to go along with it.

VMX Portfolio (Visual, Metal, X-Ray Detection)

Our VMX (Visual, Metal, X-Ray) product range offers three-way detectability in addition to food safety compliance. These innovative blue materials will visibly enhance your food processing equipment.

Ensure food safety throughout

Our food-grade compliant, advanced engineered materials enable a higher degree of traceability and automation – minimizing the risk of brand damage and recalls due to foreign object contamination. 

Safety features of our food contact materials include:

  • FDA and EU compliant polymers applicable to Food, Pharma, and Medical industries
  • Cleaning-In-Place (CIP), Sanitize-In-Place (SIP) and chemical resistance

Increase efficiency in food production

Our advanced plastics outlast metal. With less noise, wear, lubrication and energy consumption, you can improve production and cost efficiencies and throughput (MTBR) with our robust plastic-on-plastic/plastic-on-metal engineered components.

Discover a raft of advantages:

  • Stock shape materials, as well as finished parts solutions and critical parts
  • Light-weight parts (1/7th the weight of metals)
  • Self-lubricating materials allow for cleaner parts and operations, help to reduce pollutants in water systems, and reduce overall maintenance time
  • High-temperature and cleaning agents/chemicals resistance plastics
  • Minimal wear even at higher loads and line speeds
  • Noise reduction from metal-on-metal wear
  • Electrical/thermal insulation

A partner you can trust

Our thermoplastics experts have decades of experience in food safe materials between them. From prototype to production, we’ll help you choose the right materials, technologies and processes to transform and upgrade your historical components – all supported by pioneering technology. 

Our services include:

  • Development from concept to functional part
  • Industry-leading expertise
  • Solutions that may reduce the overall cost of processing in the long term
  • Rapid prototyping service to test and scale production (SPRINT)
  • Simple and fast ordering process 
  • Near Net Shape capabilities
