Metal Detectable Products

Metal Detectable Products are predominantly used within food & pharmaceutical manufacturing environments, or any production environment requiring due diligence in the prevention of foreign body contamination.

Detectamet metal detectable products are a food safe, non-toxic & cost effective alternative to expensive metal products. We manufactured our metal detectable products from assorted detectable polymer compounds. We supply these products as metal detectable but we also offer X-Ray Visible or Fully Detectable (metal detectable & X-ray visible) If one of our metal detectable products, or graments of them fall into your production lines metal detection systems will be able to detect and regject them before they reach the public, therefor reducing your risk of a product recall.

Detectamet provide the most detectable products on the market. The metal detectable range includes Pens, Scoops, Scrapers, Cable Ties, Safety Knives, Clipboards and a vast selection of PPE.

Why Should I use Metal Detectable Products?

Ordinary plastics cannot be identified and rejected by metal detection systems. So if pieces of a pen or a scraper end up in a several finished products the consumers will be the first to find them. Recent examples of plastic contamination in chicken and baby food products have resulted in expensive recalls that have raised questions against respected brand names. Products made from metal detectable plastics can reduce these risks substantially.
