TECAPET semi-crystalline polyester stock shapes produced by Ensinger, Inc. and distributed by Modern Plastics, prove to be an ideal replacement for metal parts in many food industry applications.
TECAPET exhibits excellent wear and chemical resistance along with good mechanical properties and low moisture absorption. These durable stock shapes are often used in food filling and other processing machines as well as conveying equipment where parts may be subject to chlorinated or caustic cleaning solutions.
In addition to excellent physical properties, TECAPET stock shapes certify to be compliant with FDA regulations. Manufacturers will often only certify that resins they use comply with FDA CFR regulations.
Ensinger has taken the extra step to have TECAPET stock shapes tested and they have been found to be compliant with requirements in FDA regulation 21 CFR 177.1630. This means users can be sure there will be no migration of extractable from plastic that could potentially contaminate food products.
Modern Plastics is a premier distributor of high-performance engineering grade stock shapes and medical grade plastics for both temporary and permanent implant applications. The company is ISO 9001:2003 and ISO 13485:2003 certified.
