When it comes to Silicone Rubber Sheet 60 Shore A – Food Grade, the utility is on many folds. You can just think of simple food manufacturing processes that benefits from the hygienic properties.
Duratuf Food grade silicone rubber is often used in food processing, packaging and preparation applications.
It can also be found in laboratory and medical environments. In such applications, it is crucial that every item that makes contact with the rubber is left unaffected.
Although silicone is inherently non-toxic, only a specially formulated grade of the elastomer is fit for use with consumable products. As a result, food grade silicone was developed for use with consumables.
The food packaging and handling industry is a very serious business that involves the overall health and well being of an entire nation.
Why Silicone Rubber Sheets for Food Industries?
Silicone rubber sheets are the ideal kind of elastomers to use as FDA-approved rubber. You will find that the material is not susceptible to harmful microbial agents and other contaminants. However, one of silicone rubber sheets vital qualities is temperature resistance.
Being a unique feature, you would have the need for the temperature resistance especially when the silicone rubber sheet is used as food grade silicone.
Some applications in food handling require very cold temperatures.
Silicone rubber sheet is able to withstand temperatures well below the freezing point. FDA-approved silicone can operate in temperatures ranging from -50oC to 200oC.
In addition, you can find out the laws of the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) in terms of silicone rubber (Food Grade).
