PEEK blue inductively detectable

TECAPEEK ID blue is a metal detectable PEEK made with Victrex® PEEK polymer. This PEEK has been modified with a detectable filler designed to increase detectability in food and pharmaceutical processes. The material is sensitive enough to allow for the easy detection of small particulates using standard metal detection methods. It is also visble to those systems that rely on optical inspection equipment due to the addition of blue colored pigment. All additives are suitable for food contact.
