Traditionally, wooden starch trays were used in the production of delicious fruit gums. However, increasingly strict food hygiene regulations have made the long-term use of wood as a mould carrier impossible. Together with a well-known customer, POLYTEC has therefore developed an innovative SMC material formulation which offers several advantages: First of all, the closed surface of the plastic resin system prevents bacterial contamination of the starch trays. Furthermore, the high surface quality minimizes the risk of abrasion and protects the food from contamination during the manufacturing process. In addition, the high precision and low tolerances of the components have significantly increased process reliability.
