Product name : LUVOCOM Detectable compounds
Very good detectability, food-safe and easy to process:
In the food industry and other sensitive fields, too, plastics are increasingly being employed as substitutes for metals. However, these sectors demand very special properties, which include sufficient tensile and impact strength, suitability for use with foodstuffs and, of course, detectability.
Detectable LUVOCOM® high-performance compounds offer a broad palette of tailor-made solutions for these special requirements. All the versions supplied are easy to process and are characterised by the attractive surface of the finished components. Segregation of the additives is avoided. Pigmentations are possible in numerous colour shades. In the food industry this makes it possible to ensure a clear visual distinction from the foodstuffs being processed. Various shades of blue are frequently used because food rarely tends to exhibit this colour.
Particles or fragments from injection-moulded, extruded and mechanically reworked parts can be tracked down using metal detectors or x-ray inspection systems. This provides a reliable method of automatically segregating contaminated foods or parts.
The range of detectable LUVOCOM® high-performance compounds is wide: from PE, PP, PA, POM to PES and PEEK, practically all thermoplastic materials can be supplied with this characteristic.
