Expansion of our Food Grade range for Sustadur PET FG
Portfolio expansion in blue and black
The new material in blue and black complements our portfolio of food processing materials with EU conformity for direct contact with food. Especially for components with high requirements regarding:
Low creep tendency
Low thermal expansion
Maximum continuous service temperature
this material is suitable.
In terms of the properties mentioned, Sustadur PET FG is superior to the well-known Sustarin C FG (see also table below).

Service temperature, long term (°C)
Due to its better chemical resistance to acids compared to Sustarin C, Sustadur PET FG also has advantages when in contact with acidic food and acidic cleaning agents. Cleaning with hot water or even superheated steam, on the other hand, is not recommended due to the risk of stress cracking.
Round bars: diameter 20mm-100mm, standard length 3000 mm
Plates: thicknesses 20mm-100mm, standard width 620 mm
