Now Suitable for Food Contact
Polyplastics Co., Ltd. Tokyo, Japan, has developed new grades of Duracon POM (polyacetal) that conform with regulations established by the European Union concerning food contact and drinking water supply applications.
Polyplastics will soon begin the sale of a grade for injection molding (2 types) and a grade for solid-phase extrusion molding (1 type):
- Duracon M90-57 WK2001: Food contact/wet area applications, standard, for general injection molding
- Duracon M270-57 WK2001: Food contact/wet area applications, high flow, for general injection molding
- Duracon EX-09 WK2001: High viscosity, solid-phase extrusion molding, standard
Duracon POM is used for food contact and drinking water supply applications in Japan, the U.S. and Asia due to its balanced mechanical properties and superior creep resistance, fatigue resistance, chemical resistance and dimensional stability. The new grades have good mechanical properties and moldability confirmed to be equivalent to or better than those of existing grades.
