Whenever food is being packaged or prepared, clean and sterilizable surfaces and vessels are critical. Plastics play a key role in mixing, cooking, packaging and transportation of all types of food. Plastics can be heated or cooled repeatedly without affecting food taste or appearance. Food preparation equipment made with plastics can be frequently disinfected and sterilized without fear of degradation. Bearing or load surfaces made from plastics will not introduce dangerous shavings and require no lubrication.
