POM-C inductively detectable

TECAFORM AH ID inductive detectable POM-C is modified with a metal detectable filler that provides for excellent protection in food environments that use metal detection equipment to monitor for unwanted particulates. For added safety and versatility, this acetal material is colored blue to increase its visibility to optical detection equipment in use many food plants. TECAFORM AH ID can be used in a 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 moisture absorption.
