'Detectable paper' launched to reduce contamination risk

18 January 2016

Detectamet have launched a range of detectable paper to minimise the risk of food contamination.

The paper is combined with a detectable laminate, that can then be detected by conventional scanners. 

“Consumers hate to find their food is contaminated with paper,” a statement from Detectamet said. “Yet the use of paper in food processing is still essential for many uses.”

The paper is highly resistant to tearing and damage from water and grease. But it is otherwise indistinguishable from ordinary paper. It can be die-cut, perforated, embossed and glued. It requires no special inks or toners. 

It is 120gsm and is available in A4 or US letter formats. 

“I have been astonished at the performance of this material” said James Chrismas, Managing Director of Detectamet. 

“It feels like a good quality uncoated paper and it prints so easily on standard printing equipment. We have already received enquiries from food producers and food retailers who have identified a unique use for detectable paper in their business and the safe production of their branded products.”
