MacLellan Rubber Limited, one of the UK’s foremost suppliers of polymer sheeting and rubber products, was the first choice for a client who needed a high integrity FoodSafe rubber sheet product for the manufacture of gaskets and seals used in a newly designed Bio-reactor production application.

Simon Winfield, director at MacLellan Rubber, explains: “The client needed a product that was manufactured in Europe to strict quality controls plus a guarantee that the quality was repeatable with full traceability. Our ability to meet these key requirements at an affordable price helped us secure the order which has been shipped and is now being used in a new technology in a food production application.”

Companies operating in the Food & Drink sector require reassurance that there will be no migration of chemicals from the material to the food item.

MacLellan Rubber’s FoodSafe Grade ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) Rubber Sheeting is manufactured by their European manufacturing partner in Spain.  It conforms to the latest specifications and best practice including EU1935:2004 2023/26, the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) Code of Federal Regulations 177 and is REACH compliant.

MacLellan Rubber supplies a range of FoodSafe products including Neoprene, Nitrile and Natural Rubber Sheet, Encapsulated O Rings, Braided Pump and Valve Packings, Diaphragms, and Pipe Repair Systems.
