Food-grade plastics for safe food processing

Foodgrade plastics are frequently used within the agricultural sector and the food industry.  Foodgrade plastics have excellent technical properties, such as chemical resistance, strength, wear resistance and food safety (according to the European EU 10/2011 and/or American legislation according to the FDA).

With the wide stock range of foodgrade plastics, practically all food production requirements, in terms of application temperature and time, are covered. Amari Plastics maintains a stock of foodgrade plastics, so a fast delivery is always guaranteed.

About food grade plastics for bread machines

In production lines where bakery products are produced, many food-grade plastics such as HMWPE 500, Polypropylene and Nylon are used. The blue colour scheme plays an increasingly important role here. Blue is not a natural colour and is therefore easily traceable. This includes proofing plates and parts that serve for the supply of dough, such as worm wheels and push blocks.

Denk hierbij aan de houders voor eieren, maar ook het binnenwerk van machines zoals transport bevorderende rollen die de eieren in de goede richting leggen.
