Putting safety and hygiene first in innovation

VICTREX FG™  meets various regulatory requirements but also the growing performance needs across process lines for high purity products, higher risk and aseptic lines. The unique properties of PEEK means that it can cope with demanding lines that handle high-suspended solids, sugar crystals, particulate or highly viscous, and abrasive, highly acidic juices, or metal salt-containing foods.

Industrial food and water processing

Industrial food manufacturing must meet the regulatory for foods such as meat, poultry, fish and dairy, and potable water. Combined with demands for improved taste experiences, longer shelf life, clean labels and product differentiation, VICTREX FG™ has been developed to enable innovation in extremely aggressive environments including: Conveyor systems, aseptic processing and packaging; and bottling and filling lines.
