PA 6 MDP

PA – Polyamide

PA 6 MDP

This PA6 material is modified with added filler to make it detectable with metal detectors, and it is also coloured with blue food-grade pigment. These modifications make it detectable with standard metal detectors that are commonly used in quality assurance on food production lines. PA6 MDP is available as sheets and bars.
