The Government has taken several steps to reduce food contamination. With every process under purview of food administration, use of FDA-approved rubber materials for sealing products has been advocated by authorities. SSP Seals now provides products manufactured using metal & x-ray detectable rubber materials.
As dictated by the FDA, the rubber materials used for seals should feature the following:
Sealing Industry has incorporated this material in its product offerings. The following are the details regarding the same:
As mentioned above, the materials don’t disintegrate easily. This not only helps avoid contamination but also reduces chances of part failure. This results in reduced down time. These factors have a direct impact on the cost. The cost of repair, lower production because of down time is lowered. The risks associated with part failure are also mitigated to a great extent.
Utilization of FDA-approved metal & x-ray detectable rubber materials is now mandated by law. These materials also ensure adherence to HACCP programs, which is important since the materials need to be scanned using metal detectors and x-rays to check for contaminants. Use of these materials ensures high levels of quality in food processing units.
