The food industry is governed by various processes with regard to traceability, hygiene and sanitary standards, and food safety regulations, to which products in contact with food must comply.
Silicones have proven their value in this market and are now widely recognized as meeting this need.
We own a production area of over 2.500m², including industrial areas that are split into workshops, along with ultra-protected environments.
Our compact or liquid silicone raw materials, HCR and LSR, meet food industry standards: FDA 21 CFR 177.2600 - ROHS - REACH - CE1935-2004.
To meet the needs of the food industry market, we offer metal detectable silicones.
Metal particles enter into the composition of these silicones, thereby making them easily traceable using X-rays or metal detectors integrated into food production chains.
To ensure quality service and production, we have established our quality management system according to ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 13485:2016 standards certified by LRQA under N ° ISO 9001-0079498 et ISO 13485-00079499.
In a mass consumption environment, the food industry is in constant development while facing innovative & technological challenges with new regulatory and environmental constraints. Sterne has the expertise to meet these ambitious modern market challenges, and continues to create new processes to meet the latest requirements.
Silicones also allow great flexibility with mechanical and technical properties, normative restrictions, conforming to precise standards, to aesthetic finishing, thus multiplying the number of opportunities for application. Production processes can be automated, to achieve large-scale production.
As an example
Sterne manufactures seals & gaskets for tanks, conveyor belts, production line grippers, seals for ovens doors, autoclaves, mixers, cooking tunnels, washers...
