We are proud to introduce another impressive plastic innovation! Redwood Plastics now offers X-ray detectable UHMW-PE, Acetal copolymer, and PEEK sheets and rods for machined parts and components used in the food processing industry.
The FDA has introduced the Food Safety Modernization act, and new regulations in place mandate that all food processors have extensive controls and safety programs. The FDA has the authority to recall food due to any kind of contamination and this can be extremely detrimental to your brand.
Normal use, wear and tear, and handling of plastic components on processing machinery presents the risk of contamination. Fragments can break off and enter the product during production. Most processors conduct quality checks at control points with either metal or x-ray detection systems. X-ray systems are preferred due to the food, and because the system can detect the contamination after packaging.
Redwood Plastics now offers Redco™ Polystone® M XDT and Redco™ Sustarin® C XDT. These are the most commonly used plastics in the for food processing. All of these Redco™ materials have been proven to be detected in a particle as small as a 3mm cube on productions lines that run up to 250 feet-per-minute.
At Redwood Plastics, we’re creating unique innovation to give you peace of mind in food processing.
