Cove Plastics manufactures FDA approved urethane products for use in food processing applications. Our products meet FDA Regulations for Wet and Dry Direct Food Contact. If your products are dry, such as flour or sugar, it would be an FDA dry application. For meat products, that would be an FDA Wet application.
At Cove we have an exceptional team and current Technology to help design a product that fits your needs. Urethane parts provide longer service life compared to plastics and rubber, they also offer lower noise abatement when compared to metal parts. They offer low tooling cost, can withstand extensive temperature changes, and have excellent tear strength. Urethane parts can be cast, molded, machined, and can be made sponge-soft or iron- hard.

The food industry depends on plastic parts and components as a safe and sanitary way to handle business. Plastic items and parts are more convenient, as they can be made to be chemical and heat resistant. Plastic products are also easier to sanitize, very practical and lightweight in comparison to stainless steel or metal products. Here at Cove Plastics, we take pride in our plastics and the ability to create the highest quality products.
