Title: Multiple-Use Rubber and Rubber-Like Materials Used as Product Contact Surfaces in Dairy Equipment
3A 18-03 sanitary standards cover the material and serviceability requirements of rubber and rubber-like materials intended for multiple-use as product contact surfaces or solution contact surfaces in the production, processing and handling of milk or milk products. Test procedures and criteria are also provided for rubber and rubber-like materials as a means of determining their acceptance as to their ability to be cleaned and to receive effective bactericidal treatment or steam sterilization and to maintain their essential properties in these accelerated use-simulating conditions . These standards are not meant to cover design and fabrication criteria for individual rubber or rubber-like components because such criteria are provided for in other 3-A Sanitary Standards and 3-A Accepted Practices, nor are these standards intended to cover RTV silicone adhesives or sealants.
