Food Service Products

Custom Plastics and More see plastics as an ideal material for use in food processing and handling equipment. They consistently exhibit excellent heat resistance and can be heated and cooled repeatedly without degrading, allowing for cleaning and sterilization.

Plastic materials are also durable enough to handle CIP (clean in place) and SIP (sanitize in place) chemicals for efficient methods of cleaning. In addition, they are water and corrosion resistant, providing long life and continued high performance for processing vessels, feeders and conveyors.

Plastics will continue to perform well in harsh processing environments without affecting food taste or appearance, making them a popular material for high volume food processing and handling equipment. Plastic materials are used to manufacture many parts and components for processing equipment. They are ideal for equipment that must be disinfected and sterilized, such as:

Conveyors
Rollers
Tank liners
Tubing
Machine guards
Augers
Thermoformed machine housings
Feed screws
Conveyor parts
Guide rails

Commonly used plastic materials for food handling include:

PTFE
PEEK Thermoplastic
Polycarbonate
Acetal (POM)
Acrylic (PMMA)
Nylon
UHMW
PVC

Some of the newer plastics are radiation-resistant, and can be used for processes that require irradiation. Machined plastic components are used for components that require exact, intricate shapes and that must perform in high volume processing environments.
