TECAFORM® UD Blue is the revolutionary new Ultra Detectable acetal copolymer designed specifically for applications in the food industry.
High-speed food production lines detect particulate matter in the food product one of three ways;
- Using optical scanners,
- metal detection equipment,
- or X-ray equipment
TECAFORM® UD Blue is the first engineering thermoplastic that will show up regardless of the scanning method used.
- Food contact blue in color
- High visibility of filler
- Detectable by X-ray or metal detection equipment
- Plastic chunks as small as 3mm thick detected*
- Plastic shavings to 1mm thick detected*
- Easily machined
*Using Standard metal detection equipment
TECAFORM® UD Blue is perfect for a great number of applications in the food industry.
Whether you are looking at food processing, packaging, or conveying, TECAFORM® UD Blue can be an important tool in avoiding costly food product contamination.
Typical applications include filler value and pump parts, forming plates and scraper blades, as well as bushings, bearings, cam followers and other parts.
