FDA Compliant Material In The Food Industry

Urethane Parts

There are many areas in the food industry that require FDA compliant material.  Urethanes that are used as the surface layer and guides on conveyors, tubing for conveying certain liquids, table tops, and capper rings for the bottling industry, are just some examples that are required to be FDA Compliant.
There are two different types of FDA material PSI Urethanes produces: FDA Wet and FDA Dry.  The reason there are different types is based on the environment they are used in.  If a material is used as a guard on a conveyor that carries dry products such as sugar or flour, that would be a FDA Dry application.  If it carries fish or other meat products, that would be a FDA Wet application.
