We offer both Sterochef® and Qualicare® branded metal detectable plasters, providing an option to customers of all budgets. Sterochef® plasters feature a stronger plastic dressing, whereas the more affordable Qualicare® plasters offer a lighter, but equally adhesive plastic dressing. Both brands feature an aluminium strip under the wound pad, designed to trigger industrial metal detection systems.
BRC Global Standard Food Safety Issue 7 clause 7.2.3 states: "All cuts and grazes on exposed skin shall be covered by an appropriately coloured plaster that is different from the product colour (preferably blue) and contains a metal detectable strip. These shall be site issued and monitored. Where appropriate, in addition to the plaster, a glove shall be worn."

Examples of bespoke projects include rubber seals, gaskets and extrusions, as well as pre-loaded vacuum bread depanner belts featuring metal detectable suction cups and retaining clips.
With a wide selection of food grade detectable raw materials to choose from, a solution to your problem is never far away.
BST Detectable Products reduce the risk of foreign body contamination in hygiene critical environments, such as food and drink, pharmaceutical or cosmetic manufacturing plants.
Preventing foreign body contamination is at the frontline of food safety and detectable products manufactured by BST not only help toward this goal but also comply with international regulations and complement a company's HACCP systems.
