Material Comparison

Plastics comparison made easy.

Compare up to three materials with each other and determine the right plastic for your application.

Metal and X-ray Detectable Plastics

In addition to the food-approved materials, our product range also includes metal- and X-ray-detectable plastics. The starting materials for these are PEEK, POM, PE and PA 6.

The metal and X-ray detectable materials enable manufacturers of food processing machinery to handle the detection of damage and wear on machine components more efficiently.

Tolerances of Plastic Components

Plastics are subject to different physical laws than metals.

The up to 10-fold greater thermal expansion, the change in volume due to moisture absorption and subsequent dimensional changes due to the reduction of residual stresses in long-term behavior preclude the guarantee of close dimensional tolerances.

Regulation (EU) No. 10/2011

Food-grade plastics.

Our high-quality finished parts made of engineering plastics come into contact with food in many applications, such as components in filling, mixing and portioning systems.

Tempering

Tempering generally describes the heat treatment of the material over a longer period of time.

The aim here is to maintain certain desirable service properties. In the case of plastics, this is done by heat storage in a convection oven with temperature control.
