detectable silicone sealant

Detectasil Metal Detectable Silicone Sealant

Detectasil® from Detectamet is a detectable silicone sealant that can be ‘seen’ by metal and X-ray detection systems in the food industry. The sealant is used in structural fitting and equipment installation and reduces the risk of undetected contamination of food products. It is available in white or blue, and the 310ml tube fits standard applicators.  The detectable additive tastes nasty to rodents and deters them from eating the sealant after application.

It has good performance and can be applied in temperatures from + 5º C to + 50ºC, and when cured it will operate at a Service Temperature: – 30º C to + 50º C. Unopened Detectasil® will store for 12 months, and early indicators are that it will have a long service life.

Remember the food producer who discovered that rodents had eaten the silicone sealant between his hygienic wall panels. He got rid of the pests, but replacement sealant ended up in the food process!
