Global O-Ring and Seal offers a wide variety of products which are FDA-compliant.

What does it mean for a rubber o-ring to be FDA-compliant?

FDA-compliant means passing the Code of Federal Regulations, specifically CFR 21.177.2600, which covers:

  • Dry Foods: Must meet formulation and curation criteria under conditions of good manufacturing practice as appropriate for repeated use.
  • Liquids: Must meet extraction criteria (not exceeding 20mg/sq inch in distilled water).
  • Fatty Foods: Must meet additional extraction criteria (not exceeding 175mg/sq inch in n-hexane).

Global O-Ring and Seal achieves FDA compliance standards, and our FDA Declaration of Compliance can be viewed here. Utilizing FDA-compliant material, and food safe o-rings is the best way ensure biological products adhere to federal standards of sanitation.

Note: The Food & Drug Administration does not individually approve specific products to CFR 21.177.2600. The manufacturer of the completed FDA-grade product is the designated entity to furnish an FDA certificate as evidence of its compliance. Furthermore, while a manufactured part may be FDA-grade material, one should not infer that part fits its intended technical application.
