Food, Drink, and Water Applications

Rubber compounds used in the manufacturing of containers and products used for food and beverages must be non-toxic and non-carcinogenic. When choosing materials for producing rubber parts and components to be used for foods and beverages, the main concern is the choice of acceptable materials.

Temperature and Pressure

During the packaging of food, beverage, and dairy products, rubber seals are often exposed to extreme pressures and temperatures. Rubber components must be able to withstand these adverse conditions, to ensure that unwanted contaminants are not released from the rubber material, and that secure seals are maintained to prevent outside contamination from entering.

Food and Drug Administration

The FDA specifies what types of rubber materials, parts and components can be used by the food and beverage industries. Materials must be exceptionally hygienic and have the ability to endure processing procedures and sanitization. Materials such as FDA Silicone, FDA Nitrile, (Buna-N, NBR), FDA EPDM, and FDA Neoprene exhibit natural resistance to bacteria build-up, and can be used in a broad range of working temperatures and conditions. They are odorless and tasteless, and offer excellent resistance to chemicals.
