Some of the most demanding applications for elastomeric and plastic parts are in the food, biochemical, pharmaceutical and life science industries, due to the wide range of process media and active ingredients, the aggressive cleaning and sterilisation processes, and the manufacturing regulations and hygiene standards.
ERIKS´ range of elastomers and plastics has homologation certification, and complies with the requirements of the FDA, Food Contact Notification, United States Pharmacopoeia, WRAS, and many other statutory bodies.
Some compounds offered by ERIKS also prevent the development of bacteria and micro biofilm.
But if even our extensive stock doesn´t hold the precise O-ring you´re looking for, we can produce new moulds within 24 hours, and small quantities of nonstandard O-rings - such as coloured versions - in just 1-5 days.
