Our expert team have been supplying the food and drink industry with silicone rubber extrusions for 30 years and we continue to work within the industry today. Because of our extensive experience within the food and drink industry, we understand the tight regulations and specifications you work under.
Silicone rubber is extremely versatile, hygienic and can withstand high temperatures and pressures which is why it is so well suited to the food and drink industry. Whether you’re in the food processing or drink industry, you will find a grade of silicone rubber to suit your needs.
From our manufacturing site, based in Littlehampton, we provide a number of FDA compliant and WRAS approved silicone rubber products, including:
- Rubber tubing
- Rubber cord
- Extruded profiles
- Punched gaskets
Food Grade Sponge (FGS)
Advanced Materials has developed a food grade sponge independently tested for our FGS20 grade which meets the FDA 177.2600 and BfR XV Silicones regulations and EC 1935 2004.
Ideal for use on food production lines, its low density is perfect for compression seals and dampening on food production lines. Other features of our unique food grade sponge include:
- Closed Cell
- Wide temperature range -60C to +200C
- Available in any pale colours (e.g. light blue for the food industry)
- Profiles and strips can be complete with self-adhesive backing
Pneumatic rubber seals are a specialised product. We are unique in the whole process being in-house, from design stages, tool creation (CAD/CAM technology), onto manufacturing extrusion and then moulding the joint and fitting the valves. We test all seals in-house using our pressure gauge to test to a specific PSI. This allows us to create uniform seals that perform for the application you require, from oven door seals through to watertight door seals.
Silicone Rubber Extrusions for the Drink Industry
Our range of silicone rubber products can be manufactured to meet WRAS specifications for the drinks industry. The high and low temperature range of WRAS silicone rubber means it can be used for a variety of jobs for the beverage industry. Applications include coffee machine seals and water pumps in drink machines.
All our silicone rubber products for the food and drink industry meet the requirements of the U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the German BfR, as well as the Water Regulations Advisory Scheme (WRAS), meaning our products can be used with drinking water up to 85°C.
