TECAFORM FG BLUE
Food Grade Blue ACETAL Copolymer
|TECAFORM FG Blue is Ensinger's new blue colored acetal designed
specifically for the food industry. TECAFORM is resistant to hot water,
and typical cleaning chemicals, and it possesses good bearing and wear
properties. Its blue color makes it more visible than standard grades.
TECAFORM is commonly used as bushings, rollers, wear strips and other
applications requiring a combination of strength, low moisture
absorption, chemical resistance and dimensional stability.
- No centerline porosity
- Low moisture absorption
- Excellent machinability
- Good combination of mechanical properties
- Resistance to food industry cleaning chemicals
TECAFORM FG BLUE is resistant to aqueous solutions with pH
values ranging from 4 to 14.
- Good wear and abrasion properties
- TECAFORM FG Blue is manufactured from resin and color
components that are FDA, USDA, and 3A Dairy compliant
- Good dimensional stability
- Good property retention at elevated temperatures
TECAFORM is used in a wide variety of food
industry applications requiring good strength and toughness, dimensional
stability, wear resistance and the ability to operate in a wet
environment with little absorption. Material handling, filling and
bottling equipment are some of the common machines utilizing TECAFORM's
combination of properties. Typical applications are gears, wear strips,
bushings, pump parts, fittings and rollers.
