SCOPIC IS THE LEADING PROVIDER OF X-RAY & METAL DETECTABLE PLASTIC TECHNOLOGY
Detectable products are fast becoming the standard in the food processing, pharmaceutical and healthcare industries, where their main purpose is to be identified should they become lost or detached.
SCOPIC provides detectable masterbatches and compounds for use in these end products, which are suitable for use in most polymeric materials. They can be any combination of X-ray opaque, metal detectable, laser detectable and antimicrobial, with the use of SteriTouch technology.
X-RAY OPAQUE ADDITIVES, MASTERBATCH & COMPOUNDS
Detection of ‘foreign bodies’ by X-ray is reliant upon the following:
Due to these factors, detectability should always be confirmed with the actual combination of X-ray machine and product under standard operating conditions.
SCOPIC can offer masterbatches incorporating additives which will impart either metal or X-ray detection in isolation or the possibility to offer detection by both methods in one masterbatch.

METAL DETECTABLE ADDITIVES, MASTERBATCH & COMPOUNDS
Metal detectable products are commonly used in food production environments, where consumables such as modular belting, cable ties and pens have the potential to contaminate the supply chain. If any part of a metal detectable product becomes detached, it will be picked up by an industrial metal detector on the production line – preventing supply chain breakdown and expensive recalls.
Metal detectable fillers are converted into an ultra-fine powder and extruded into a polymer masterbatch. SCOPIC can supply either a masterbatch or a ready-dosed compound, with either a universal carrier or tailored to your base material.
