Metal Detectable Silicone Sheet
Advanced Seals & Gaskets Ltd supply an extensive range of high-quality solid rubber materials, one of which is Metal Detectable Silicone rubber. Metal Detectable Silicone rubber is manufactured in continuous rolls of various lengths at 1.2meters wide, in thicknesses from 0.5mm to 10mm which can be shipped as complete rolls or cut down into sheets.
ASG has extensive on-site conversion facilities, comprising of presses, bandsaws, slitters and CNC machines, which we can use to convert Metal Detectable Silicone rubber into sheets 1 meter or 2 meters long by 1.2 meters wide or smaller bespoke sized sheets or pads.
These sheets can be used to cut into various other products including gaskets, washers, pads and strips, supplied with a plain or self-adhesive finish carried out by our in-house conversion and laminating service.
What are Metal Detectable Silicone Rubber sheets?
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 and in a range of standard thicknesses which can be cut down and supplied as sheets, ready for our customers to convert into finished usable components as and when they’re required.

Why use Metal Detectable Silicone Rubber Sheets?
Metal Detectable Silicone rubber can be used in the form of a 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.
Metal Detectable Silicone rubber sheets can be used to cover large surfaces or to cut and convert into a range of products such as sleeves, gaskets, strips and washers for use in countless applications involving products made for consumption.
Advantages of using Metal Detectable Silicone Rubber Sheets
There are many advantages of using Metal Detectable Silicone rubber sheets, not only are they manufactured with additives for use with metal detection scanning equipment, but they 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 sheets can not only be used as surface coverings but also to manufacture strips, pads, gaskets or transfer sleeves for use as food/drink transfer, sealing, insulation, isolation and protection applications.
