Food-Grade Gaskets

Find the Most Durable Food-Grade Gaskets

Select From North Coast Seal’s FDA–Approved Materials

No matter what sector of the food processing industry you are in—from meat and poultry processing to dairy production and beverage bottling—you must adhere to strict standards for your equipment. All materials must be non-marking, non-toxic, and resistant to both bacteria growth and chemicals: This includes your food-grade gasket seals. Gaskets, used to make a seal between two flat surfaces, must be made of materials approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The FDA approves materials that are non-allergenic, offer good abrasion resistance, and have a wide operating temperature range. You will find a variety of FDA-approved materials for your food-grade gasket production at North Coast Seal.
