Machine Guards and Food Grade Plastics

Formation Plastics is highly aware of the dangers for companies working with foods and keeping them safe from contaminants. We regularly manufacture products which are required to have a food safety grade. 

A list of food safe/food grade plastics would include:

  • Natural grade Nylon 6 & 6.6 (without additives)
  • Acetal
  • Polyethylene in grade 300 – 500
  • Polypropylene
  • Polyester (PET)
  • PEEK
  • PTFE

Some plastics to be avoided altogether as they are not considered “food grade” or food safe:

  • Nylons with additives (such as oilon)
  • PVC
  • Polystyrene
  • Regen (recycled) UHMWPE
  • Other (including Polycarbonate and acrylic)

We have used FP for over 10 years to assist us in producing high quality products with a quick turnaround.
