Material Know-how as a Core Competency

With its special requirements for hygiene and process reliability, the food and beverage industry needs a sealing expert with extensive market know-how and expertise in materials.

Freudenberg Sealing Technologies provides specially developed materials that have all required certifications and meet all compliance requirements. Besides resistance to extreme temperatures, seals need to withstand aggressive media, such as cleaning agents, fat and flavored syrup.
