Dear <<First Name>>,
Welcome to the latest 4PLAS newsletter, in this edition we would like to highlight recent developments of our 4TECH® food grade polyamide compounds.
As part of the continuing development and expansion of our 4TECH® range of high performance and specialist technical materials, we now have a specific range of food grade polyamide compounds for use in the food and beverage industries.
These 4TECH® grades are formulated using 100% food certified Polyamides, glass fibre and all other additives, including pigments.
Initial commercial applications already include:
4TECH® 9B22130 F a PA6 30% glass fibre reinforced food grade used in valves for liquid bulk food containers, where this material was chosen as it offers excellent long term chemical resistance for a wide range of food oils and additives, in combination with excellent stiffness and long term creep performance in a very demanding application.
4TECH® 9A22130 F is a food grade PA66 30% glass fibre reinforced material specified for plumbing fittings. This particular food grade has also been submitted for WRAS approval to expand its use into drinking water applications.
4TECH® 9B22130 IF a PA6 30% glass fibre reinforced, impact modified food grade developed for fridge parts including drain and ice scoops (see photo) which in addition to food compliance offers excellent toughness at low temperatures.
