Metal Detectable Silicone Strip
Here at ASG, we offer a vast variety of high-quality non-metallic strips including foams, sponges, rubber and plastics, some of which include specialist grades, all manufactured using some of the latest states of the art machinery.
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 from which strips can be cut.
Metal Detectable Silicone rubber strips are one of 1000’s products we are able to produce in-house, which are all made to order, manufactured using one of our many machines including bandsaws, strippers, log cutters and even presses depending on the size and quantity required.
For very small strips in high quantities, a kiss-cut option may also be available for a quicker turnaround and ease of use.
What are Metal Detectable Silicone Rubber Strips?
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.
Strips are pieces of metal detectable silicone rubber material, cut to a specific width, in pre-cut lengths or continuous coils as requested by our customers, often used in a similar way to a gasket placed between two surfaces to create a seal, provide cushioning, anti-vibration or insulation.

Why use Metal Detectable Silicone Rubber Strips?
Advanced Seals and gaskets offer silicone rubber strips in a range of different grades, each with different resistance levels and properties suited to various applications and industries.
Metal Detectable Silicone rubber can be used in the form of a detection strip 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.
Advantages of using Metal Detectable Silicone Rubber Strips
There are many advantages of using Metal Detectable Silicone rubber strips, not only is the material 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 can be manufactured in the form of a strip for use as sealing, insulation, isolation and protection applications.
