PA 6 inductively detectable blue

This PA 6 is modified with an metal detectable filler, and is likewise pigmented with a food compliant blue colorant. Ensinger manufactures the product under the tradename TECAMID 6 ID blue. This polyamide modification can be detected by the standard metal detection equipment that is typically used in the quality inspection process typical in most food industry processing facilities.
