Metal Detectable Cord

Metal Detectable Cord

Product Description

This material is a must-have for FDA-compliant businesses. It has the exact same properties as standard FDA- approved Silicone but has an extra perk. It has additives inside the rubber that can be metal detected. This makes it easier to identify contamination inside of rubber as erosion can occur at any point of the rubber’s life span.

We can supply a wide range of cord sizes ranging from 1mm in diameter up to 195mm in diameter since we manufacture in-house at our factory in Norwich, United Kingdom.

  • Catering industries
  • Food preparation
