Metal Detectable Silicone Rubber
Advanced Seals & Gaskets Ltd pride itself on being one of the UK’s largest suppliers of non-metallic materials including foams, sponges, rubber and plastics, many of which are available in specialist grades. One such material is Metal Detectable Silicone rubber, which is manufactured in continuous rolls of various lengths at 1.2meters wide, in thicknesses from 0.5mm to 10mm.
ASG has extensive on-site conversion facilities comprising of presses, bandsaws, slitters, coaters and CNC machines, which we can use to convert Metal Detectable Silicone rubber into a whole host of bespoke parts including cut sheets from 1 meter in length to gaskets, washers, pads or strips, coated in a range of self-adhesives and foils.
What are Metal Detectable Silicone Rubber Rolls?
Metal detectable silicone rubber is a blue coloured, FDA approved, high-quality material, which, unlike other food-safe rubber, contains additives that are visible to metal detector scanning equipment, enabling users to easily identify and remove any unwanted fragments or contamination in the food, drinks and pharmaceutical production process can be easily identified and isolated.
Metal Detectable Silicone rubber is manufactured in roll form (continuous lengths of material) and in a range of standard thicknesses which can be used to manufacture sleeves, chutes, cover large surfaces and conveyor belts, or converted into finished usable components as and when they’re required.

Why use Metal Detectable Silicone Rubber Rolls?
Metal Detectable Silicone rubber rolls can be used to cover large surface areas or to cut into parts such as detection strip, pad, gasket or surface lining in food, drink and pharmaceutical industries where the risk of contamination needs to be eradicated.
Metal Detectable silicone is a fully FDA compliant, long-lasting, heat resistant material that allows for easy detection and removal of contaminants, giving users peace of mind, time-saving with quick and easy detection and cost savings on production downtime or for product recall.
Taking the material in roll form allows customers the freedom to cut their own parts as and when they’re needed as opposed to taking large quantities of the same product at once.
Advantages of using Metal Detectable Silicone Rubber Rolls
There are many advantages of using Metal Detectable Silicone rubber, not only is it manufactured with additives for use with metal detection scanning equipment, but it can also be used as a high or low-temperature resistant component in food, drink or pharmaceutical applications, with a working temperature range of -60°C to +200°C (even reaching as low as -80°C before becoming brittle).
This material minimises the risk of foreign objects contaminating the product or sensitive equipment, therefore saving costs on having to fix machinery or recall and disposal of finished products which have reached the market contaminated.
It saves time by minimising how long production is stopped whilst foreign bodies are removed and also ensures the final product is always safe for use or consumption.
Metal Detectable Silicone rubber rolls can be used to manufacture strips, pads, gaskets, mouldings, transfer sleeves or sheets for use as sealing, insulation, isolation and protection applications.
