Slideways Metal Detectable Materials Help Reduce Contamination Problems for the Food Industry

To help Food Processors reduce the risk of costly contamination and recalls Slideways is now producing components of Meta Detectable Plastics.

Current Metal Detectable Plastic Materials:

  • Acetal
  • UHMW
  • Nylon
  • PEEK
  • Also X-Ray Detectable
  • Also X-Ray Detectable


  1. Improved impact resistance resulting in in less breakage
  2. Material additives allow for detection of small particles via
    metal detection
  3. Improved safety with materials compliant to FDA criteria
    for food contact
  4. Reduced financial and brand risk due to contamination or recall
  5. Reduced down time increasing productivity

X-Ray Detectable Materials

X-Ray detectable material provide for additional advantages in assuring
the elimination of contamination. X-Ray scanning allows the scanning
packaged goods for contaminants. Particles can even be found in
metal containers due to material density.
