    Metal Detectable Silicone Rubber Sheet

    FEATURES

    Reglin Metal detectable Silicone Rubber Sheet is a premium grade 60 Duro food grade and heat resistant silicone rubber sheet.

    Metal detectable silicone rubber contains additives which make it magnetic and visible to metal detection equipment.

    It has very high temperature resistance and will maintain its flexibility and physical properties over a wide temperature range. Silicone has excellent ozone resistance and is UV stable making it weather resistant and suitable for outdoor use.

    Reglin Metal detectable Silicone Rubber Sheet is tested and conforms to FDA 21 CFR 177.2600 “Rubber articles intended for repeated use”.  This makes it suitable for contact with dry, aqueous and fatty foods as defined by the FDA.

    Metal Detectable Silicone Rubber Sheet is fully post cured.  It is carefully produced to comply with European Commission regulations EC2023/2006 “good manufacturing practise for materials and articles intended to come into contact with food”.

    STANDARDS

    Reglin Metal Detectable Silicone Rubber Sheet conforms with the following standards.

    As stated in FDA 21 CFR 177.2600.  In accordance with good manufacturing practise finished rubber articles intended for repeated use in contact with food shall be thoroughly cleansed prior to their first use in contact with food.
