Why Blue?


Many metal detectable products are colored blue for two reasons:

  • Easy visual detection
  • It is the most common non-food color

What is used to make Tools and Equipment Metal Detectable?


In plastic products such as scrapers, pens, and vinyl gloves, a unique manufacturing process involving the inclusion of a metallic pigment enables the plastic to be detected. In other products such as earplugs, a stainless steel ball bearing is enclosed in the plug to make them detectable.

What is the Difference Between Embedded Metal and Impregnated Material?

A product with embedded metal is only detectable if the product piece containing the metal goes through a detector. With a product that is impregnated, the entire piece has fine metal particles throughout, making the entire piece, or parts of it detectable.
