In recent years, newly developed high-performance engineering plastics have helped to drive considerable improvements to manufacturing efficiency and product quality within the food industry. Food safe thermoplastics play a crucial role in modern food production systems, enabling essential steps along the production line, from intake to handling to storing to packing.
From food safe PE to high-performance PEEK, we have a food grade polymer for most any application. The team at Mitsubishi Chemical Advanced Materials is constantly working to develop innovative thermoplastic solutions for challenging applications in hygienic equipment used for industrial food processing and packaging. By putting our thermoplastic expertise to work in service of our customers, we have built out an extensive product offering containing specialties like metal detectable plastics and food safe anti-static materials.
Material compliance in the food industry is a crucial and complex topic. MCAM customers benefit from the knowledge of our international network of partners, trained to help food processing equipment manufacturers navigate food safety regulations and select the right food grade material for their application. Working closely with OEMs, we consider everything from the type of food product, to the duration of contact, to the temperature of the processing facilities.
Plastics approved for food contact differ by region and application. Learn how MCAM can help you ensure compliance.
Prevent food contamination with MCAM’s portfolio of specialized blue materials that are also metal detectable and X-ray detectable.
From selecting the right material to designing a reliable machined component, MCAM supports customers in the development of high-performance, food safe parts.
