Siltec offers silicone profiles in qualities that are particularly suitable for use in the food sector. These silicone profiles and profile gaskets can meet all common quality standards and norms, such as the specific requirements of FDA §177.2600. You can find them in end applications such as ovens in bakeries and restaurants, as well as in food processing equipment and machinery.
As an elastomeric material, silicone offers the optimal properties for use in the food sector. The specific qualities meet the necessary food requirements. The release of volatile and extractable substances is reduced to a minimum by a qualified tempering process.
Special treatment methods result in a tasteless and odorless design. These methods are particularly relevant for very high-quality applications. In addition, we can produce metal detectable silicone profile. This allows the detection of silicone residues in the food in case of abrasion or mechanical destruction of the silicone part.
Siltec has many years of experience and a large number of long-term partners in the food industry. We can therefore offer you the best possible support in selecting the silicone profile you need. If no common profile meets your requirements, we can also help you to design and develop a suitable silicone profile with our own construction.
