Silicone Sponge Sheeting - Metal Detectable

Metal Detectable ProductsCut Pieces Available



Metal detectable silicone sponge sheeting is a closed cell sponge containing additives visible to metal detector scanning equipment. This helps to avoid product contamination as loose pieces of the sponge can be easily identified. Silicone sponge sheeting displays excellent resistance to heat and anti-stick properties and is supplied skinned on both sides as standard.

Density:  19.7 lb/ft³

Temperature: -60°C up to +230°C (+250°C short term)

Applications: Metal detectable gaskets, seals and oven seals for use in food, drink and pharmaceutical applications.


Available with a self-adhesive backing upon request.

Colour: Blue
Roll Size (mtrs): 5 x 1
Thickness (mm): 1.5, 3, 6 (as standard) 2, 4, 5, 8, 10, 12

Note: Although our metal detectable sponge is detectable by the majority of metal detection and X-ray devices we are unable to offer any guarantees and recommend that you test the material with your equipment.

Note: AZDN is used as a blowing agent and although this is cured extensively after manufacture, it is not proven that the AZDN agent has been entirely burnt off. Therefore, silicone sponge sheeting cannot be classified as FDA grade, although the vast majority of its ingredients are FDA grade.
