In the Food industry there are high standard regulations regarding hygiene. Due to the low coefficient of friction of fluoroplastic products (and hence the smooth surface), contamination is kept to a minimum. One of the key properties why products of among others PTFE are very suitable, and commonly used, in the Food&Packing industry.
Through numerous migration testing and inspections, we deliver products in accordance with regulation EU 10/2011 which is now applicable to parts supplied for processing/delivery to/by the food industry. As well, there is a FDA approval available for various other (fluoro)plastic materials.
