Metal Detectiable grade
This PE-UHMW grade with extremely high degree of polymerisation contains a metal detectable additive which hardly affects the inherent PE-UHMW key properties. TIVAR® MD presents excellent toughness and impact strength, an even improved wear and abrasion resistance when compared with TIVAR® 1000. It also features a food contact compliant composition.
TIVAR® MD has been specifically tailored for use in the food processing and packaging industries where it can easily be traced by the conventional metal detection systems installed to detect contamination of the foodstuffs (results may vary depending on the sensitivity of the metal detection system used).
Because UHMW-PE belongs to the specified flammable materials, it should be stored and managed in accordance with the Fire Service Law and fire prevention regulations.
Depending on the type of food and detector settings, the size of debris that can be detected may vary significantly.
