Silicones can satisfy all current food regulations
As a low taint, non-toxic material, silicone are ideal for direct and indirect food contact.
They are inherently water repellent and have an inorganic backbone. They therefore provide hardly any scope for algal and bacterial growth.
Coupled with its high resistance to detergents and cleaning agents, as well as being extremely resistant to hot water and hot air, renders them an ideal choice for rice and pressure cooker gaskets, food moulds, processing auxiliaries for all drinking water and sanitary applications, cooking and baking components, kitchenware, food-grade tubing, etc.
Because of their inorganic nature, low extractable content, clean aesthetic appearance, plasticizer-free polymer and easy cleaning, silicones can satisfy all current food regulations.
Tailor made silicone Compounds
We can tailor made Evosil silicone compounds to be in compliance with requirements and substance restrictions of the following regulations:
- U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA),
- Water Regulations Advisory Scheme (WRAS). This means that items are suitable for contact with drinking water up to 85°C.
They can be made for compression or injection molding, extrusion,..
