POM-C inductively detectable

TECAFORM AH ID grey inductive detectable acetal is a metal detectable POM-C material designed for use in the food industry. It’s grey appearance resembles the stainless steel parts typically used in the same applications, but offers the added benefits of lighter weight, lubricity, and easier maintenance characteristics among other features. TECAFORM AH ID grey is the companion material to TECAFORM AH ID blue, which offers the versatility of being visible whether metal or optical detection systems are being used.
