Plastics in Food Processing

The food processing industry has very stringent rules and regulations, and for obviously good reasons. The Food Modernization Act has magnified these rules introducing new challenges to be in compliance.

Cast nylon plastics from Nylatech are commonly used in conveying, packaging, bottling, and canning machinery parts and are ideal for scrolls, wear plates, chain guides, bushings, sprockets, dough forms/cutters, bumper blocks, wear strips, conveyors, pulleys and sheaves, conveyor chains and much more.

Here are a few reasons why using plastics are better for many food processing industry applications: food-safety - Nylatech Natural and Natural Oil cast nylons plastics are certified and tested for use in the food processing industry; durability - when parts break or need replacing the entire production line often needs to be shut down. This wastes time and money. When your parts are made from cast nylon, you get exceptional resistance to wear, abrasion, rust, chemicals, and corrosion, which means their life-span is significantly longer than other materials; strong but light - cast nylon plastic parts are extremely light weight and have high impact strength and self-lubricating - greasing bearings and bushings can actually be a violation, self-lubricating parts can be the solution.
