Engineered plastics with visual, metal, and x-ray detectability
Increase safety and efficiency with the VMX (Visual, Metal, X-Ray) portfolio. Our new VMX polymers enhance your food processing capabilities by bringing three-way detectability and dual food compliance (EU and FDA). The range includes four unique polymers – each tailored to meet different performance requirements.
Better performance through a safety-first approach
Food safety is the highest priority for processors and Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM). Your reputation is banked on it. Plastic contamination in a food product could mean food recalls, legal penalties, brand damage and even bankruptcy.
That’s why food safety is always at the top of our agenda when we develop engineering plastics for food contact applications. But we also know that OEMs and processors face further challenges. Food processing speeds continue to increase. This in turn causes increased stresses on equipment, leading to potential failure of components which can risk food contamination in the long run. In order to improve food processing safety, the need for components made from high-performing, detectable polymers has never been greater.
Increase production efficiency with VMX polymers
A unique portfolio of materials for the globally evolving detection technology in food processing environments.
Not only will these blue plastics with metal and x-ray detectability improve safety, but also help you to meet your sustainability targets and improve your production capabilities with:
We are unique in the industry – the only company to offer Food Compliant Materials that are detectable in three ways:
Our VMX portfolio spans much more than traditional metal detectable solutions. VMX products improve the safety and integrity of processing operations and food quality – having superior mechanical properties to help improve overall production efficiencies.
* detectable size varies depending on food and technology type.
