Freudenberg Sealing Technologies is adding further engineering plastics
to its portfolio of materials for worldwide use in the food and beverage
industry. Among others, these include the two high-performance PTFE
materials Y002 and Y005, which now have all global food-specific
approvals and can safely withstand drastic temperature fluctuations as
well as aggressive media.
When it comes to processes in the food and beverage industry, there are no
uniform legal requirements on a global level regarding which ingredients may be present in materials that come in contact with the products. As a result,
manufacturers of products for the global market face major challenges, since
seals, for example, cannot be used universally. This situation creates an
advantage for materials that meet all globally applicable conformity
requirements to the highest degree possible. Freudenberg Sealing Technologies offers an extensive and continuously updated portfolio of
elastomers and engineering plastics to meet these requirements. Among these are different specially developed EPDM materials (e.g. 70 EPDM 382, 75
EPDM 386, 85 EPDM 387), two proven VMQ materials (60 VMQ 117117, 70
VMQ 117055) as well as various engineering plastics from polyethylene and
polyamide to PTFE.
The latest additions include the two reliable PTFE materials Y002 and Y005,
which are now also approved for global use in the food and beverage industry.
They are remarkable for their very high purity, wide temperature range for
applications and high resistance to almost all media.
