Advanced Food Safe Plastics for Food & Beverage Manufacturing

Explore the world’s broadest portfolio of plastics approved for food contact, including innovative metal detectable plastics and blue materials.

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.

Engineering Plastics for Food Contact Applications

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.


Selecting the Right Compliant Material

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.
