FDA rubber gaskets are fabricated from rubber sheet that is made from FDA approved ingredients in compliance with Title 21CFR177.2600. The gaskets, and the sheet from which they are made are not FDA approved – it is the ingredients used to produce the sheet that meet the requirements of Title CFR177.2600. This regulation for rubber materials includes many compounds, such as Nitrile, Neoprene, Viton, Silicone, and others. FDA gaskets are required in applications where the gasket comes in contact with food products.
Expert Gasket & Seal stocks FDA Nitrile & FDA Silicone in several thicknesses and can provide FDA rubber gaskets from other compounds as well. Expert Gasket & Seal also provides non-rubber FDA gaskets from Teflon® and PTFE based materials such as Durlon 9000 & Durlon 9600. Please contact us for assistance with your FDA application.
