Seals for Drinking Water System Components
NSF 61 Certified Materials
All products in the United States that are manufactured, sold, or distributed for water treatment must comply with NSF/ANSI Standard 61: Drinking Water System Components—Health Effects. This standard sets important health criteria for water system components, from mechanical devices and pipes to plumbing devices and sealing materials. Our certified NSF 61 compounds will ensure that your products meet regulatory requirements for the United States and Canada—and this certification helps you assure your customers that your products that come into contact with drinking water are safe.
Our NCS 7A-70 Compound
Ensure Resistance to Chloramine
Another concern for our clients in the drinking water industry is chloramine resistance. Chloramines are disinfectants used to treat drinking water because, as noted by the Environmental Protection Agency, they provide long-lasting disinfection as water moves through the piping system to consumers. This compound—which can be used to mold anything from O-rings to seals—has been developed strictly for the United States drinking water industry and is certified by NSF International in compliance with NSF/ANSI 61. It fully satisfies chloramine testing requirements.
