Metal contamination is a major issue in the plastics processing industry. Not only do metal contaminants pose issues to quality and compliance, but they can also damage plastics processing equipment.

The key to metal-free production is enacting the right combination of a variety of countermeasures. Through a balance of in-process inspection, a robust program for total preventative maintenance, and end-of-line metal detection, plastics manufacturers can reap the rewards of high system availability, low rejection rates and happy customers.

How metals end up in plastics

Metal contamination has a variety of different causes. Metal contaminants are often introduced during the production process, such as through general wear and tear from machinery or tools. Other times, metal may be present in the intake materials or introduced through employee handling.

Effective countermeasures for metal contamination in plastics.

In our white paper, we provide a detailed outline of the issues, their causes and the necessary countermeasures for eliminating metal contamination in the plastics processing industry.
