Mold Making for Food-Related Applications
Use select Polytek® silicone rubbers to make one-of-a-kind culinary creations for your restaurant or business.
The silicone rubbers listed below were tested by an independent laboratory and were found to comply with 21 CFR 177.2600 (as published in the Code of Federal Regulations)* for rubber articles intended for repeated use food contact surfaces when accurately measured, thoroughly mixed, and fully cured.
Possible culinary or food processing applications include:
- candy molds
- ice molds and trays
- chocolate molds
- butter molds
- cake decorating and fondant molds
- gaskets and seals for food-processing environments
Review individual product Technical Bulletins for processing instructions. Prior to using silicone molds or parts for food applications, thoroughly wash the mold or part with a water and dishwashing detergent solution, rinse, and allow to dry. When applicable, thoroughly wash the mold or part in between batches. If baking, do not expose the mold to temperatures above 400°F.
*Compliance with this regulation does not mean that these silicone rubbers are FDA approved - the user of these materials must also comply with all applicable FDA requirements to be approved.
