Eriez PolyMag Metal and X-ray Detectable Plastic Additives

Monday, 01 July, 2019 | Supplied by: Eriez Magnetics Pty Ltd


Eriez’s PolyMag additives impart metal detectability, X-ray contrast and magnetic susceptibility into plastic mouldings to prevent plastic contaminated food products from reaching the consumer. The product makes plastic as detectable as metal.

The company provides the additives in a non-dusting pellet, allowing moulders and extruders to produce metal detectable and X-ray visible plastic parts for food contact applications. Moulders can satisfy varying levels of detectability at a lower cost than specialty compounds. This eliminates the need to buy minimum quantities of special resins and carry excess material inventory.

Major restaurant chains insist that food processors utilise plastic and rubber articles that are metal and X-ray detectable. This has become part of many companies’ HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point) programs.

Eriez Magnetics’ FDA compliant PolyMag additives impart metal detectability, X-ray contrast and magnetic separation into a range of polymers. The company supplies these masterbatch additives to moulders of returnable plastic containers, pallets, scoops, scrappers, O-rings, conveyor belting, bucket elevators and more. It also provides PolyMag powders for special compounding needs or for use in foam, thermoset rubber and liquid raw materials.

Eriez can assist users with the level of detectability and X-ray contrast required by different food processing applications and it can provide an analysis of the product’s inspection signature.
