How often do you see blue foods?

Apart from kids parties and the like where the icing on the cake might be blue, there is a limited number of naturally occurring blue foods.

This is the key reason that leading international engineering plastic manufacturers now offer blue UHMWPE materials.

Engineering Plastics are key direct food contact materials used in modern food production lines, also sometimes the trickiest to detect due to the density and types of plastics used.

If your production line uses visual inspection methods, our blue UHMWPE materials will greatly assist your staff with the visual detection of foreign matter.

Make your production line parts with our food compliant blue UHMWPE that is FDA and EU10/2011 certified.

Protect your companies reputation.

This customer moved to food compliant blue UHMWPE for their production line parts

UHMWPE has fantastic fatigue resistance, very high abrasion resistance, will not degrade with CIP wash down solutions and is FDA & EU 10/2011 certified for direct food contact.

Our customer was already using UHMWPE for its amazing properties, they then decided to protect their reputation further by switching to blue UHMWPE.

With a risk of fracture due to the thin working edge of this component, blue UHMWPE was the material of choice.

One very happy customer indeed.

Special portfolio of food and beverage plastics

The special portfolio of Ensinger materials fulfils the specific demands of food technology in terms of safety and performance.

✅ Optical detectable plastics

The blue colour of the plastic clearly stands out from the colour of processed foods.
Optical detection is economical and continues to prove successful in a wide range of applications.

✅ Inductively detectable plastics

These plastics come complete with an additive to permit detection with the aid of a metal detector.
Broken fragments can be quickly traced as part of the standardised process control system.
The costly process of destroying whole batches and even image-tainting recall campaigns can be avoided.

✅ Ultra-detectable plastics
UD (ultra-detectable) materials represent a further development of ID materials.
These meet the requirements of additional X-ray detection.
Product safety is further enhanced by an additional detection method.
