Food Grade Blue Copolymer Acetal Washington, PA - July 11, 2011 – Ensinger is pleased to announce that we have added to our product portfolio of materials designed to be used in food industry applications. TECAFORM FG Blue has been designed and developed so that food equipment components machined from the material will be more visible than the same parts made from standard natural colored acetals.

Ensinger partners only with the best prime resin suppliers for all our acetal materials. This fact combined with state of the art process technology gives TECAFORM FG Blue its outstanding physical properties, and low internal stress, which makes for more dimensionally stable components.

Why blue?

See What’s New These days, safety is of utmost concern to those companies that process and package food and beverages. Blue is the only color that does not widely occur naturally in the food chain. Therefore, should components break or wear during operations, small pieces will be more likely to be picked up by the optical inspection systems typically used in many food processing plants.

TECAFORM FG Blue can also be used to color-code similar parts made for different lines or pieces of equipment. It is available from stock in several different sizes of rod and plate. Please contact TPI for more information.
