Elastomers (of rubber compounds) for food processing and beverage equipment

One of the largest applications for specialty elastomers and plastics is in Food Processing and Beverage Equipment. These seals are required to resist the chemical and thermal environments present in the equipment, while not releasing any unwanted or unknown contaminants into the process. Many applications require the sealing materials to be 'capable of being cleaned and receiving effective bactericidal treatment while still maintaining physical properties'.
