FOOD CONTACT

Regulatory compliant solutions for food and drinking water applications

VICTREX FG™
food contact-safe polymers

VICTREX FG™ portfolio of polymers meets the most stringent food grade material requirements. Our polymers are certified to safety, quality and regulatory compliant standards – ensuring that customers only taste what they are supposed to taste.

Putting safety and hygiene first in innovation

VICTREX FG™  meets the regulatory requirements but also the growing performance needs across process lines for high purity products, higher risk and aseptic lines. The unique properties of PEEK means that it can cope with demanding lines that handle high-suspended solids, sugar crystals, particulate or highly viscous, and abrasive, highly acidic juices, or metal salt-containing foods.
Industrial food and water processing

Industrial food manufacturing must meet the regulatory for foods such as meat, poultry, fish and dairy, and potable water. Combined with demands for improved taste experiences, longer shelf life, clean labels and product differentiation, VICTREX FG™ has been developed to enable innovation in extremely aggressive environments including: Conveyor systems, aseptic processing and packaging; and bottling and filling lines. 

Commercial and domestic appliances

Reduce component costs by replacing metal components with the mass production of complex, resilient, injection moulded VICTREX PEEK components that require no further processing or machining. Typical applications include ovens, cookware, fryers and rice cookers. Additionally, beverage dispensers and coffee machine components such as piercing needles.

Analytical equipment 

High-precision injection moulded parts and excellent material properties, deliver fabrication and end-use efficiencies in laboratory analytical equipment. VICTREX FG™ enables high-precision volume metering with minimum pressure loss; and precision moulding and durability in applications such as ultra-high pressure liquid chromatography.

creating the perfect brew

From the smallest components to whole processes, VICTREX FG™ solutions have been proven in domestic and commercial coffee machines, in components such as coffee pod piercing needles.
