Food Grade Gasket Material

This material is specially formulated for its whiteness with FDA-approved ingredients per 21 CFR 177.2600.  It is non-toxic, non-marking and non-allergenic.  All of the food grade gasket material exhibits good abrasion resistance and handles oily and greasy food products well and are intended for repeated food exposure.  They have a superior, long-life sheet designed specifically for general gasketing, countertops and skirting in all areas of food processing and pharmaceutical and cosmetics manufacturing.  It is approved by  USDA for meat and poultry processing.
