Metal Detectable Polypropylene (PP) Compounds

Metal Detectable Masterbatch

In the food processing industry, plastic products are used as substitutes for products made from metals. Along with other hygiene conscious industries, the food industry requires these plastic products to have specific properties, which include sufficient tensile and impact strength, suitability for use with foodstuffs and detectability.

Detectamet offer high performance detectable compounds including Polypropylene (PP), ABS (Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) and Nylon tailor-made for these special requirements. Visual recognition is also an important feature of the Detectamet range, not just for identification in food product but also for segregation within the factory environment. Detectamet offer the largest range of hygiene colours currently available on the market. This allows customers to incorporate Blue, Black, Red, Green, Yellow, White, Purple, Orange anf Pink into their hygiene control procedures.

Fragments from injection-moulded, extruded and mechanically reworked parts can be detected using metal detectors or x-ray inspection systems. This provides a reliable way of automatically rejecting contaminated products and helps to display all due diligence in the on-going fight against foreign body contamination.
