What are Food Quality Silicone Sponge Rubber Seals?
Food Quality Silicone sponge is a white coloured, closed-cell material with a medium density, unlike some ‘food safe’ materials available, Food Quality Silicone Sponge is fully FDA compliant to FDA 21 CFR 177.2600 standards for repeated use in the food industry and is also WRAS approved (Water Regulations Advisory Scheme) for use where there is contact with drinking water.
Food Quality Silicone Sponge is platinum cured and only contains safe ingredients in its compound, which is taste and odourless so that they do not cause contamination. FDA silicone sponge rubber seals are a device or substrate that is used to join surfaces together to either act as a separator or a body to prevent liquids, solids or gases from escaping or penetrating the seal.
Our Food Quality silicone sponge rubber seals can take the form of cut gaskets, strips, washers, extruded profiles and cord, all manufactured using the same closed cell sponge which can be compressed, which in turn ‘hardens’ the material to create a secure seal, many of which can be supplied with a choice of self-adhesives which assists with holding the silicone sponge rubber seals in situ.
