Metal Detectable Engineering Plastic / Detectable Acetal

Detectable Acetal

This copolymer acetal grade, containing a metal detectable additive, has been specifically tailored for use in the food processing and packaging industries where it can easily be traced by the conventional metal detection systems installed to detect contamination of the foodstuffs (results may vary depending on the sensitivity of the metal detection system used).

Detectable Filled Acetal presents good mechanical strength, stiffness and impact strength, and it also features a food contact compliant composition.

  • Good balance of stiffness and impact strength for applications where higher dimensional stability is required
  • Metal and visual detection by blue colour
  • Detection by X-Ray also possible
  • Continuous use temperature up to 105°C (221°F)
  • Available in Sheet, Bar Stock & Machined Parts.
