What is Metal Detectable Nitrile Rubber?
Blue nitrile rubber gaskets are cut from a synthetic elastomer that contains special additives. Furthermore, these additives are visible to metal detector scanning equipment. This quality material provides excellent resistance to abrasion and tear and has great resistance to both animal & vegetable oils, including fatty acids. Additionally, the highly visible blue colour also meets industry requirements.
Where is it used?
The gaskets are commonly used in the food, drink and pharmaceutical applications such as Food Plants, Pharmaceutical and Cosmetic Manufacturers. The reason being is it helps to reduce the risk of product contamination. It advances the elimination of contamination by the polymer into the process not only through early detection of particle contamination, but also through eradication of leachable Nitrosamine carcinogenic compounds found in many standard polymers.
As well as this, nitrile rubber is also certified to EU1935 standards and is Nitrosamine and ADI (animal derived ingredients) free.
