FDA approved elastomers

Daemar Inc. is a major supplier of essential components for industry and is prepared for the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. As they comply with government requests to help flatten the curve, many manufacturers have converted their production processes to make necessary supplies like sanitizers and protective devices. To take on its responsibility to help these manufacturers, Daemar provides FDA approved elastomers (i.e., approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration) and sanitary components.

Equipment for demanding medical environments

O-rings, seals, cords, extrusions, and custom-moulded urethane parts are among the elastomers and urethane sealing components available. DMR retaining rings are also available in stainless steel for FDA and sanitary applications. Many types of equipment for challenging medical environments use Daemar sanitary components like seals, bushings, retaining rings, and shim, which are essential for valves, pumps, and motors. It is important to choose the appropriate material and design for these components, for longevity and top performance.

The following FDA approved elastomers and sanitary components are available from Daemar:

  • Braided packing – FDA PTFE packing with interlocked braids with break-in lubricant.
  • Caplugs medical parts – instrument and tip protection, connectors, medical packaging, and silicone caps.
  • PTFE encapsulated Viton O-rings – virtually chemically inert, compression-set resistant O-rings for harsh sealing environments.
  • Sanitary gaskets – available in many FDA approved elastomers, fluoroelastomers, and Kalrez perfluoroelastomers.
  • Self-lubricating bearings – three options for off-the-shelf, FDA/USDA-compliant linear bearing for food-processing, pharmaceutical, packaging, or medical equipment.
  • X-ray and metal detectable seals – industry-specific parts that help eliminate product recall, decrease product loss, and prevent distribution of contaminated items.

These components are designed to function in harsh medical and pharmaceutical processing environments. They are built to resist the biological materials to which they are exposed, and they also have to be able to withstand the regular cycle and chemicals of wash-down applications. Government regulations and standards for products used in medical applications add another layer of complexity.

Daemar’s website provides medical and food-processing pages to help clients learn how to choose the correct products for their work conditions.
