Plan Tech Inc. and Eriez Inc. collaborate to offer joint development of FDA compliant additives for urethane parts

Loudon, NH., May 16, 2017 — Collaboration between Plan Tech Inc. and Eriez is making it easier than ever for food and packaging engineers to design and specify Eriez’ PolyMag® additives that impart Metal Detectability, X-Ray Contrast and Magnetic Susceptibility into urethane moldings to prevent polyurethane contaminated food products from reaching the consumer. Plan Tech has been supplying high-quality FDA approved urethane parts across the United States for the last 30 years. Since 1942 Eriez has been a global leader in advanced technology for magnetic, vibratory and metal detector inspection systems.


Plan Tech has come to rely on Eriez’ experience when identifying new food grade applications that demand their superior technical support. From the start of a new project, Eriez’ technical support team will assist our design team when selecting Metal Detectable and X-Ray Visible urethane parts such as urethane gears and urethane sprockets for food contact applications. Plan Tech can satisfy varying levels of detectability at a cost substantially less than specialty compounds. This eliminates the need to buy minimum quantities of special resins and carry excess material inventory.


The benefits of casting a high-performance polyurethane with Metal Detectable and X-Ray Visible additives is the ability to detect fragments of urethane parts in food applications. FDA compliance allows us to produce high-performance products such as urethane gears and sprockets for food processors. With the help from Eriez, Plan Tech’s material physical properties are unmatched by similar materials and original equipment. 


“FDA compliant polyurethane part applications continue to grow worldwide. Eriez is recognized as having market leading expertise. This expertise, combined with Plan Tech’s three decades of custom cast urethane experience is a key driver in our ability to continue to grow our business.“ said Kevin Healy, Plan Tech VP Engineering.
