For Coolants and Food Contact
DuPont International, Geneva, Switzerland, forecasts shorter development times if customers make use of DuPont Engineering’s experience in the simulation of the material behavior during the engineering phase (Fig.).
PA66 and PA612 compounds are offered for rigid and flexible coolant lines that are resistant to aggressive water/glycol coolants with high internal pressures. That applies to the temperature range from -40 °C to 125 °C. In the meantime, halogen-free flame-retardant PA66 compounds to UL 746B achieve a relative temperature index (RTI) of 160 °C. DuPont is the first company to introduce a food grade (FG) portfolio for which raw materials and plastics are produced under GMP conditions. These correspond to the directives of the FDA and the EU certification regulations for contact with foodstuffs and for use in healthcare applications.
The polyacetal Delrin FG400MTD is suitable for food contact and can also be detected by metal detectors. Its main application is where food safety is a key requirement.
Co-exhibitor on the DuPont booth is Biesterfeld AG, Hamburg, Germany, a trading company for plastics and chemicals.
