Food, Pharmaceutical & Biotechnology

TRP Polymer Solutions specialises in the design and manufacture of high precision rubber moulded components and food grade seals, made from FDA compliant materials. Commonly used in the food and pharmaceutical industries, our biotechnology components can be custom made to meet individual application requirements.

At TRP, we only use the very best materials and process technologies when manufacturing FDA seals for the food industry, ensuring complete quality management at every stage of the process. We manufacture food grade seals from the most reliable polymers in order to satisfy stringent application and industry standards.

Tested and certified to FDA 21 CFR177.2600

At TRP polymer solutions, we take the sanitary standards of all our FDA seals and components extremely seriously. This is why we go to great lengths to test and certify all of our food grade rubber to not only meet but exceed the stringent regulations set by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

TRP Polymer Solutions tests and certifies all of our FDA approved rubber under the most stringent laboratory conditions. Our food grade rubber far exceeds the standards expected of rubber materials intended for repeated use with aqueous or fatty foods, enabling us to develop failsafe FDA seals for a wide range of applications.

All of our FDA approved rubbers are tested and certified to FDA 21 CFR177.2600 and comply with Regulation (EC) 1935/2004 of the European Parliament and of the council of 27th October 2004. We have also developed a range of 3A sanitary rubber and USP Class VI rubber materials to complete our selection of food safe materials.

FFKM O-Rings and other seals for the food industry

In the food, pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, food seals and FFKM O-Rings are most commonly used in high pressure clean in place (CIP) processing equipment. A CIP/SIP system is a high-pressure machine used for cleaning fluids and sterilisation in the food, beverage and dairy industries.

Sealing solutions from TRP Polymer Solutions meet the stringent demands of these industry sectors and are compliant with FDA requirements. This means that we can provide our customers with a complete and reliable solution when it comes to delivering FDA seals for pharmaceuticals and food grade seals for the food industry.

Food grade seals and seals for pharmaceuticals at TRP

At TRP Polymer Solutions, we offer a wide material and polymer selection, including Perfluoroelastomers (FFKM), Fluoroelastomer (FKM) and PTFE. Our PTFE is bonded to an energised elastomer core, which makes it hardwearing, robust and reliable – ideal for use in the food industry. Our wide-ranging selection of materials means that customers are sure to receive the most optimal food grade seals for their industry and application requirements.

Our FDA seals for pharmaceuticals are commonly used for mixing, pumping, sampling and dispensing equipment, offering a safe and durable solution.
