Metal Detectable

DMR Seals holds an extensive range of semi-finished metal detectable rubber, metal detectable polyurethane, metal detectable plastics and metal detectable PTFE in stock to enable rapid turnaround of critical food-safe sealing products to OEM machinery manufacturers, food and beverage production facilities and pharmaceutical plants around the world.

All of the materials we offer are blue in colour for simple visual identification and some have been independently tested by a leading metal detection machinery manufacturer with sample seal fragments as small as 2mm being identified on a process line running at a speed of 25 metres per minute.

The use of the correct metal detectable material can give customers compliance to FDA and EU food standards and allows instant recognition of batch contamination, preventing costly product recalls and possible consequential damage to company reputation.

Please talk to our technical team if you require help identifying the correct material for your application from the list below.

Description

A metal and X-Ray detectable, peroxide cured EPDM; the material of choice for seals and other elastomeric parts being used in food contact applications where contamination is absolutely unacceptable.
Approvals: CFR 177.2600 FDA Compliant

The material of choice for seals and other elastomeric parts which require excellent chemical and/or fluid compatibility while working in food and beverage applications where contamination is unacceptable.
Approvals: CFR 177.2600 FDA Compliant

A metal detectable NBR; a good choice for seals and other elastomeric parts which require fair chemical and/or fluid compatibility while working in food and beverage applications where contamination is unacceptable.
Approvals: CFR 177.2600 FDA Compliant

A high-performance PEEK material that has been modified through the addition of a metal detectable ingredient and pigmented blue in colour for easier identification.

An excellent material choice for seals and other elastomeric parts which require excellent chemical and/or fluid compatibility while working in static food and beverage applications where contamination is absolutely unacceptable.
Approvals: CFR 177.2600 FDA Compliant
