Adding detectable and antimicrobial properties to equipment

08 May 2018

Antimicrobial brand SteriTouch has launched a new detectable additive range for the food processing sector. The SCOPIC brand of masterbatches and compounds provide metal and X-ray detectable qualities to conveyor belt material and other food handling consumables, by incorporation at the manufacturing stage into polymers, rubber and composite materials, as well as coatings. 

The detectable compounds can also include an antimicrobial from SteriTouch, which is said to impart lifelong antibacterial properties to any material, reducing the risk of cross contamination from bacteria such as E.Coli, Listeria and Salmonella.

Facilities at the company‚Äôs South Wales site include tensile, impact and environmental testing, along with metal detection equipment. Research and development work is carried out in-house, including moulding and extrusion which allows the company to address many complex material issues such as UV stability and brittleness.
