The Plastics Group of America Expands Product Line of NSF/ANSI Certified Materials
Availability of These New Products Will Increase TPG’s Appeal to Manufacturers
(Woonsocket, RI – October, 2015) – The Plastics Group of America (TPG) has expanded its line of products that are NSF/ANSI certified.
TPG’s Polifil® GFPPCC-WS series compounds are Water Safe Homopolymer polypropylenes reinforced with chemically coupled glass fibers and are certified to NSF/ANSI Standard 61. They have been expanded to include a wider range of glass and are now available in white, black and natural colors.
Certification to NSF/ANSI 61 ensures that your product meets the potable water requirements for the U.S. and Canada, and it can often meet or fulfill the testing requirements for many other countries as well. Market leaders strive to attain NSF certification as a mark of distinction that provides their customers with assurance that their product is safe for use in drinking water.
The Polifil® GFPPCC-WS compounds offer superior strength and stiffness, improved elevated temperature performance, better creep resistance, higher impact strength and higher resistance to high temperature water than conventional glass fiber reinforced polypropylenes. Polifil® GFPPCC-WS products are also UL94 HB rated. These compounds are used in chemical resistance applications, appliances, electrical components, automotive, irrigation, utility, filter systems, and potable water products. Standard processing techniques are applicable.
TPG’s Executive VP, Mike Rosenthal, commented, “expanding our offerings in this manner naturally increases our appeal to manufacturers. They now have a reliable source for NSF/ANSI-certified compounds in a variety of colors that will perform beyond expectations in any number of applications. We look forward to serving both existing customers as well as new ones who will incorporate these exceptional products into their applications.”
