ALAMID® D - Magnetically detectable compounds (PA 6/ PA 66)

Components in plastic have become established in the production plant used by the food processing industry. Containers, conveyor buckets, transport crates, moulds, housings, tools and machine components, etc. are increasingly being made of polymer materials.

Plastics in the food industry - robust, light weight, flexible and versatile

These have many different advantages over metals: plastics are resistant, light weight and easier to shape and thus offer considerably more scope for design. When engineering plastics are used as a substitute for metals, however, it is not always possible to readily fulf il all the requirements. The nature of the materials means that aspects such as detectability and magnetisability are lacking.

Applications in the hygiene-sensitive food industry, however, require these properties in some cases. If fragments of plastics inadvertently make their way into the production process, as a result of damage, carelessness or defects, it is not only the resulting disruptions to production that pose problems. Much more serious is the danger that these fragments could end up in food and could pose a serious health risk if ingested. It is thus essential to ensure that these foreign bodies do not remain in the final product.

For safe enjoyment - detectable compounds minimise risk potential

ALAMID® D compounds are magnetically detectable. The basic…
