Specifically developed for food and beverage applications, Trelleborg Sealing Solutions presented sealing materials for beverage filling systems. Ideal for filling and packaging equipment, these Isolast compounds provide resistance to concentrated flavouring additives, which can cause excess swelling in conventional elastomers, says the company. In addition, they withstand frequent harsh CIP (Cleaning In Place) and SIP (Sterilisation In Place) regimes, ensuring extended seal life.

Isolast is claimed to be suitable for seals and moulded parts that are exposed to extreme chemical and thermal conditions. Being almost chemically inert, Isolast is resistant and durable in contact with media including solvents, acids, alkalis or steam and has operating temperatures between -40 °C and +325 °C. This makes Isolast especially suitable for use in foodstuff technology, such as in beverage and milk industry filling systems, where seals in contact with foodstuffs must remain neutral while withstanding cleaning processes that involve hot steam or aggressive media.

The sealing materials are FDA (Food and Drug Administration), USP (United States Pharmacopeia) Class VI and 3-A Sanitary Standards approved.
