Our metal detectable silicone rubber strip has been tested to fulfil the global migration criteria as specified in FDA 21 CFR 177.2600 through extraction in n-hexane and deionized water.

* Although our metal detectable rubber is detectable by the majority of metal detection and X-ray devices we are unable to offer any guarantees and recommend that you test the material with your equipment.
