The global food and beverage industry is a vast and complex sector responsible for feeding the world’s population, and a major contributor to the global economy, with a market value of over $5 trillion. This industry encompasses everything from growing and harvesting crops to processing and packaging food and drink products, and constantly evolving, driven by advances in technology and changing consumer preferences.

Durlon® understands that the food and beverage processing industry face a range of challenges. Every product needs to meet strict international safety and hygienic regulations. The materials used in the processing equipment must not release any chemicals into the foodstuffs, and prevent leaks or other malfunctions that could expose products to contamination. Further, sealing materials used in the production process must be able to withstand aggressive media such as cleaning agents, greases and extreme high and low temperatures. That’s why our sealing solutions provide exceptional performance in food and beverage applications, delivering unsurpassed product integrity, safety and reduced downtime.

Our Food and Beverage industry related gaskets have achieved numerous certifications for WRAS approved Material, USP Class VI, FDA, API 6FB Fire Tests and conform to FDA 21 CFR 177.2600 rubber articles intended for repeated use.
