Detectable Plastics and Material Sheeting

 

Detectamet’s extensive range of detectable engineering plastics have been specifically developed to meet the stringent demands of the food and pharmaceutical industries.

 

This range of products including sanitary seals and gaskets have been tested and proven in use at leading manufacturing and processing plants.

 

Detectamet can manufacture and supply their range of detectable rubber seals, detectable o-rings, seals and gaskets in a variety of sizes, colours and material specifications to meet your requirements.

 

What materials can we manufacture?

UHMW-PE

This ultra high molecular weight polythene is suitable for use in the following applications: wear strips, fuide rails, corner wearbends, chain guides, bearings, bushes. scrapers, rollers, idler wheels, liners, general machined parts.

 

PA6 Filled Nylon

Polyamide 6 grade containing a metal detectable additive, has been specifically tailored for use in the food processing and packaging industries where it can be traced by the conventional systems installed to detect contamination of the foodstuffs.

 

Acetal

Ideal for use with gear wheels with small modulus, cams, heavily loaded bearings and rollers, bearings and gears with small clearances, valve seats, snapfir assemblies, dimensionally stable precision parts and electrically insulating components.

 

PEEK

PEEK is based on polyetheretherketon resin. This semi-crystaline advanced material exhibits a unique combination of high mechanical properties, temperature resistance and excellent chemical resisrance making it the most popular advanced plastic materials.

 

PTFE

Detectamet’s detectable PTFE is chemical and corrosion resistant. PTFE can withstand a large temperature range of +260oC and down to -260oC.

 

DETECTATHANE

Detectathene is part of a new series of polyester-based thermoplastic poly-urethanes, specifically targeted forr extruded profiles, film and sheet applications. Metal detectable TPU exhibits the excellent abrasion resistance and properties found with standard TPU, with the added benefit of being metal detectable.
