Jan. 30, 2018
Learn about the US Food and Drug Administration validating Ridge Corp's PolarX refrigerated liners and DymondPly dry van panel systems.

Engineers with Ridge Corporation, manufacturer of transportation lining systems, have confirmed direct food contact classification per US Food and Drug Administration regulations for the firm’s PolarX refrigerated liners and DymondPly dry van panel systems.

Independent, third-party testing validates all materials used in construction of PolarX and DymondPly are safe for both single- and repeat-use direct food contact applications, complying with the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act 21 USC §301 et seq, specifically section 1, subpart O for transportation of human and animal food.

Ridge has taken the next step in providing carriers with the necessary assistance to comply with regulations set forth in the Food Modernization and Safety Act. PolarX and DymondPly materials are naturally hydrophobic, prohibit bacterial and fungal growth, and protect against staining and unwanted odors for the life of the trailer or truck body without the need for additives.

All Ridge materials can be easily cleaned with FDA-compliant cleaners per industry best practices.
