Food-Grade Products for Maintenance in Food Plants


DANVERS, MA — ITW Devcon offers a broad range of Permatex® and Devcon® products that are safe for use in food-processing facilities. These include threadlockers, thread sealants, gasketing compounds, RTV sealants, and epoxy compounds for repairing metal equipment and forming a protective barrier against abrasion and corrosion.

Numerous Permatex® brand products are registered for use in food processing facilities by NSF International, a not-for-profit organization that sets voluntary standards for public health and safety and certifies products that meet those standards. These products cover the basic maintenance requirements by food processing facilities to keep their equipment up and running smoothly while preventing costly downtime.
