Product Announcement from Quadrant Engineering Plastic Products
Quadrant offers metal detectable engineering plastics for Food and Dairy Production.
The foremost goal in the food and beverage production & packaging industry is to deliver high quality, healthy and safe products.
A highly regulated market where not meeting international standards can quickly become a major threat to the business, a product recall could turn into the worst case scenario for a producer. At the same time, market dynamics force a continuous cost and productivity improvement.
Producers need to prevent contamination of food caused by e.g. breakage or wear of equipment parts, using predominantly metal detectors.
Replacing equipment parts with engineering plastics can improve production speed or extend productive cycles of machines due to reduced downtime significantly.
The growing demand for polymer materials as a replacement of metal parts presents strong demand for new and improved, metal detectable plastics.
Quadrant developed a range of traceable polymer materials, which offer superior properties compared to metal or existing plastics.
The manufacturer will be able to choose from a range of products based on the application and the most critical material quality.
Key material qualities:
Improved impact resistance resulting in less breakage of highly stressed plastic parts inproduction and process equipment
Material additives allow detection of very small (27 mm3 and bigger) particles via metal detectors addressing the remaining risk of occurring breakage or wear
Improved safety supported by according to FDA and EU standards food contact compliantand metal detectable plastic materials
Reduced contamination of food, resulting in less related costs and reduced financial and image risk
Longer productive periods and lower maintenance costs
Quadrant is the world's largest manufacturer of machinable plastic materials. We develop new materials to meet the changing needs of industries around the world. Our investments in innovation have yielded the broadest product line. Our broad range of materials can solve your design problems - and our extensive product support, R&D and application development resources can help you smoothly implement the perfect solution.
We cluster our materials into a few simple groups determined by their ability to perform at temperature. While our site has many ways to search and compare our materials, the groups below are a quick and easy way to get an overview of the machinable materials available.
A new Name for Pioneering Spirit and Innovation
With more than 70 years of experience in processing plastics, Quadrant has become a reference for innovation. We have made many key groundbreaking developments since the invention of plastic. Plastics pioneers such as Polymer Corporation / Polypenco, Erta, Poli Hi, Solidur, Cestidur and Symalit are combined under the umbrella of the Quadrant Group.
