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. Read more in our FAQ section below.

 

Possible culinary or food processing applications include: 

  • candy molds
  • gummy molds
  • CBD or THC gummy molds
  • ice molds and trays
  • chocolate molds
  • butter molds
  • cake decorating and fondant molds
  • gaskets and seals for food-processing environments

 

Benefits of Polytek silicones:

  • silicone molds provide non-stick release properties for many food-based casting mediums 
  • dimensional stability for precise dispensing amounts 
  • easy to clean 
  • long mold life when properly built and maintained 

 

Processing:

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. The addition of additives, such as color pigments, create conditions that have not been tested and therefore no statement can be made with respect to their FDA compliance.
