Food & Beverage

Food Grade and hygienic materials for increased safety in volume production and packaging.

The majority of mechanical polymer components, required by the food, drink and pharma technology sectors, are found in processing, filling and packaging technology. We produce a myriad of materials for high production volumes require hygienic applications.

Low friction & FDA compatible material properties significantly reduce risk if contamination and required energy output for a safer, easy to clean and more efficient application.

FDA Compatible Materials

Suitable of FDA application.

Chemical Resistant

Chemical resistance properties ensures materials can withstand the strictest of hygienic site washing regimes.

Low Friction

Low coefficient friction qualities make Nylon the ideal replacement for traditional materials in high wear applications.
