Research & Development


Intensive research to find a safer material for test stick housings resulted in destructive testing of plastic materials.

These tests showed that if broken acrylic and some other plastics had a tendency to splinter and shatter. The plastic leaving the parent material became incredibly difficult to find once embedded in food products using a metal detector.


In these days of increasing litigation and Health & Safety compliance our high impact, shatter resistant, translucent ICTeststicks are designed to supersede all existing brittle acrylic test sticks to help minimise the risk of shattering your reputation!
