Metal Detectable Silicone Rubber EU1935:2004 is one of the many materials that we work with here at Stephens Gaskets. When it comes to precision machined components, you can trust that with over forty years of experience under our belts, we know exactly what we are doing. Our decades in the industry have led us to establish a highly in-depth knowledge and understanding of the tools and components we produce and also the materials we use to produce them.
The importance of quality at Stephens Gaskets
Quality always has and always will remain at the very forefront of our business, and we work hard to ensure it is reflected in all of the products and services that we offer at Stephens Gaskets. There are many different steps we take in the business in order to achieve the high levels of quality, the most important one being the resources that we work with. Whether it’s the laser cutting machines we cut components with or the moulding equipment we create plastic injection moulds with, our tools and equipment are all of the highest standard to guarantee consistent quality and value in all that we manufacture.
Choosing our materials
Another hugely important factor that goes into guaranteeing excellent products is the materials that we choose to work with. Having spent plenty of time in the manufacturing industry, we have developed and maintained strong relationships with some of the world’s leading material suppliers. By working with trusted suppliers, we have access to the finest quality materials to work with, which in turn creates precision machined components that won’t let you down. We work with an all manner of different materials, with one of our most popular ones being metal detectable silicone rubber.
EU1935:2004 compliant rubber
Our Blue Metal Detectable Silicone Rubber is compliant to EU1935:2004 standards and also meets the US Food and Drugs Administration (FDA) 21 CFR 177-2600 specifications. During the manufacturing of the material, additives are introduced into the mixture which are visible to scanners and metal detectors – making the rubber easy to track in other products. If the rubber contaminates other items, it can be identified and removed easily. Due to the fact it is metal detectable, this type of rubber at Stephens Gaskets is a great choice of material to manufacture rubber seals and rubber gaskets with. The blue rubber has a temperature range of -60°C to +200°C and is chemical and flame resistant making it ideal for use in a wide range of industries such as the food, drinks and pharmaceutical industries, and suitable for weather and ozone applications.
