Antimicrobial and metal detectable food processing surfaces
Dotmar Engineering Plastics has been providing the food industry with food contact approved plastic solutions for more than a generation, and further innovation and support continues with the assistance of Roechling Germany, and the development of advanced products, to ensure risk is minimised and consumer safety assured.
The firm's latest product is antimicrobial plastic food processing surfaces and cutting boards for use in applications where bacteria and contamination risk are highest.
Polystone Microbloc is a traditional food processing, or cutting board, plastic that uses advanced silver nitrate technology to combat microbial growth and is toxin free. Bacteria, virus, yeast, fungi, mildew and algae are killed before they can develop and cause harm to consumers.
Most importantly Polystone Microbloc is both FDA and EPA approved for food contact applications. Polystone Microbloc antimicrobial cutting boards and food processing surfaces are mandatory in many large European food production plants, including the Emsland poultry plant in Haren Germany where more than three million broilers are processed every week.
Microbloc ensures high standards of consumer safety and the protection of companies' valuable brand equity and market share. In addition to the antimicrobial benefits, the material is also cut resistant, and has excellent chemical resistance to CIP process.
Dotmar Engineering Plastics can machine or cut Microbloc to any size and a range of thickness are available.
Dotmar has metal detectable grades of plastic for cutting boards, and food processing surfaces and machine parts.
With Dotmar Polystone Detectable, any foreign matter from plastic machine parts, cutting boards, conveyor wear components etc, that contaminate products, can be identified by metal detection prior to leaving the processing area.
Polystone Detectable is available in a range of thickness and shapes and is FDA approved.
