New Innovations for Manufacturers from Cosmetics to Baby Foods

02 Feb 2018

2018 sees the launch of two key products from MacLellan Rubber specifically aimed at the safety critical manufacturing and processing markets in Food & Drink, Cosmetics, Pharmaceuticals and Biomedical industries.

Nitrosamine-Free: Nitrile, Neoprene and NR Material:

Nitrosamine-Free #FoodSafe Nitrile, Neoprene and Natural Rubber material available in Sheet Rubber for gaskets and seals and as uncured compound for moulding and extrusion applications.

Producing material that is Nitrosamine-Free by eliminating the creation of these Carcinogenic compounds during the vulcanisation process is an important advance for polymeric sealing materials and represents significant investment in material development and processing technology, and is independently tested and certified by IANESCO in France.

Historically seen as a natural outcome of the vulcanisation process, albeit at low levels, industry and legislators have been increasingly focused on removing all risk of contamination through material degradation or leaching from seals and gaskets during the production process.

MacLellan qualities 0731 (Nitrile, NBR), 0621 (Neoprene, CR) and 0128 (Natural, NR) are available to order now.

Metal Detectable Nitrile Rubber Material:

Nitrosamine-Free #FoodSafe Metal Detectable Nitrile Rubber Material in Sheet Rubber for gaskets and seals and as uncured compound for moulding and extrusion applications.

Using the formulation technology developed to produce our Nitrosamine-Free #FoodSafe materials and following requests from UK and European clients, MacLellan have taken a step further to produce a unique Metal Detectable Nitrile material as an alternative to expensive Silicone based products.

The enhanced benefits of using Metal Detectable Nitrile are both commercial and in industrial reputation through reduced risk of waste product through early detection of any contamination, reduced risk of downtime, and reduced risk of quality complaints. 

Launching in early 2018, you can register your interest in this product or speak to our Sales Team.
