Food safe materials
In January 2011, the European Commission adopted a new regulation on materials and items made from plastic and intended to come into contact with foods. This new regulation - Regulation EC 10/2011 - is in force since the 1st of May 2011 and forms part of EC Regulation 1935/2004.
Murtfeldt Kunststoffe was able to conclude the required migration processes for its products that are intended for use in the food industry. From now on, [FS] ("food-safe") will be added to the names of these products.
Each sector and application has specific requirements for machines and plants. Quality is important in even the smallest components, since it influences subsequent production and machining processes. We have always concentrated on the task of developing forward-looking products for a wide application spectrum. Our technical materials are primarily characterized by good slide properties and high wear resistance. This means that we are able to guarantee a long lifetime for our materials and low maintenance requirements for your plants.
Our high-performance materials are designed to meet unusual requirements and high stresses and stains. They are the result of the consistent development of our technical materials. They are characterized by exceptional chemical, mechanical, and thermal resistance and resilience in situations of dynamic stress. Murtfeldt high-performance materials are therefore ideally suited for extremely customized tasks.
The most important factors of our materials' success are as follows:
- Excellent slide properties
- High wear resistance
- Great mechanical and chemical resistance
- Long lifetime
- Economical, quick, and precise production of finished parts in accordance with individual requirements – even in small quantities
- Pre-cut custom parts from sheets and rods
- Large warehouse stock of semi-finished parts with different dimensions
- Short delivery times thanks to ample warehouse capacities
