FT. WAYNE, IN – Trelleborg Sealing Solutions now has two compounds that are listed by NSF International as conforming to the requirements of NSF/ANSI Standard 51 – Food Equipment Materials. Turconâ€šÃ‚Â® MF5 compound has recently achieved this status, joining Turconâ€šÃ‚Â® MF6 in the listing.
Turconâ€šÃ‚Â® MF5 and MF6 are part of the Turconâ€šÃ‚Â® MF range of materials specifically engineered for demanding processing environments, including food and beverage production. Based on ultra-clean technology, these proprietary compounds are manufactured from high-purity PTFE grades and additives. Their smooth finish, with high gloss and low porosity, avoids the risk of contamination buildup and reduces particle shedding. Each batch of MF material is manufactured using high-purity material only and can be issued with a certificate of conformity.
The materials are available in custom profiles along with Turconâ€šÃ‚Â® Varisealâ€šÃ‚Â® and specifically for hygienic and super clean environments, Turconâ€šÃ‚Â® Varisealâ€šÃ‚Â® Ultra-Cleanâ€šÃ¢â€žÂ¢. In this unique seal, the energizing spring is fully enclosed, eliminating dead space and the consequential risk of contamination.
