Visual, Metal and X-ray detectiable grade
This UHMW-PE grade with extremely high degree of polymerisation contains a metal detectable additive which hardly affects the inherent UHMW-PE key properties. TIVAR® VMX 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® VMX has been specifically tailored for use in the food processing and packaging industries where it can easily be traced by the conventional metal and X-ray detection systems installed to detect contamination of the foodstuffs (results may vary depending on the sensitivity of the 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.
