HYDEX 4101 UD Blue combines the traditional high performance plastic characteristics of toughness, wear and chemical resistance, with new detection additive technology, to create the most versatile engineering plastic yet designed for the food industry.
HYDEX 4101 is already well known in the food industry because of its toughness, wear resistance and excellent resistance to chlorine and caustic based cleaning solutions.
These days, as an increasing emphasis on food safety takes hold, engineers are beginning to rely on an even more versatile material solution in HYDEX 4101 UD Blue.
It is a fast growing addition to Ensinger’s family of Ultra Detectable products that are visible to the three most common types of food safety inspection systems; optical, x-ray and metal detection.

HYDEX UD Blue Improved Detection Capability
HYDEX 4101 UD Blue is specifically designed for applications in the food industry.
While most plastics are difficult to see amid food products, are invisible to x-rays, and not detectable like metal, HYDEX 4101 UD Blue contains special additives that help overcome these vulnerabilities. The product’s inherent blue color shows up better than typical white or beige colored plastics.
Testing shows it to be visible to in-line x-ray detectors with settings between 1-3 milliamps and 50-60 kilovolts. Finally, testing shows
Finally, testing shows HYDEX 4101 UD Blue fragments as small as 3mm in size are detected 99.5% of the time by in-line metal detectors.
HYDEX 4101 UD Blue combines the traditional high-performance plastic characteristics of toughness, wear and chemical resistance, with new detection additive technology to create the most versatile engineering plastic yet designed for the food industry.
It is available from stock in both rod and plate.
