The food and beverage industries help provide the basic food and beverage needs for all people. Plastics have transformed for the better how we are impacted by these industries; everything from bottles and containers to promotional, structural and mechanical usages.
Advantages of plastics
The advantages of plastics in chemical manufacturing are numerous. Plastics are much lighter than metal, which equate into better fuel economy and cheaper to manufacture parts. Additionally, the lighter weight aids in safer material handling. Plastics can be designed to be impact and dent resistant, and modified for improved strength. Corrosion resistance is one of the key advantages for the Chemical industry.
Materials Utilized Within Industry
Plastics used in the Food and Beverage industries are typically FDA, USDA, NSF, 3-A Dairy, and Canada AG compliant, including Nylon, UHMW, Teflon, PVC tube, Ultem, Acetal/Delrin, PET, Sanalite Cutting Board and Metal Detectable Plastics
