Food Grade Sponge Manufacturing

The Advanced Materials team has developed a closed cell platinum cured silicone food grade sponge principally for the food and drink and pharmaceutical industries.  It has the following qualities:

  • Suitable for food contact in accordance with BFR, FDA and 2002/72/EC, our platinum cured sponge (FGS) can be used in contact with food, making it ideal for use in food processing machinery
  • This exciting material can be extruded as strips, cord and basic profile shapes
  • Our customers are now able to find a silicone sponge with excellent compression properties, resistance to high temperatures and FDA compliant
  • Our FGS has been tested by ERT and has been proven to meet all the criteria for extractables required by FDA 21 CFR 177.2600
  • The sponge compound is prepared in-house using only those ingredients that are proven to meet all criteria for extraction FDA 21 CFR 177.2600
  • We can now state that our silicone is FDA compliant, and give you confidence for using it in your food grade applications
  • Along with FDA compliance, our FGS has a high-temperature resistance which makes it the material of choice when high heat is used in food and beverage processes. With a standard temperature range from 230ºC to-60ºc, FGS can be used in extreme environments and maintain its high-performance sealing properties
