Food Industry

Silicone has become an indispensable material in the food industry, thanks to its exceptional thermal resistance, flexibility, and chemical stability. These properties make it suitable for contact with food and beverages without altering their taste and quality. 

Silicone tubes in the food industry are appreciated for their flexibility, allowing the passage of fluids and semi-solids between different parts of machinery and devices. 

Their smooth inner surface prevents the accumulation of residues, facilitating cleaning and sterilization processes. 

The tubes must meet stringent standards such as the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) or M.O.C.A. specifications to ensure food safety. 

Silicone profiles are used as seals and sealants in containers, refrigerators, and other equipment requiring an airtight insulation. They prevent the leakage of liquids and protect food from external contamination. 

Silicone can withstand temperatures ranging from -40°C to +200°C, allowing its use in a wide range of operating environments. The material does not react with most chemicals and does not promote the growth of bacteria or mold.
