Polifil® GFPPCC-WS

Polifil GFPPCC

Chemically Coupled Glass-Reinforced Polypropylene Certified to NSF/ANSI Standard 61

Polifil® GFPPCC-WS series compounds are Water Safe Homopolymer polypropylenes reinforced with chemically coupled glass fibers and are certified to NSF/ANSI Standard 61 and meet the regulatory requirements of the U.S. and Canada for Drinking Water System Components. These 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. 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. Use this information as a guide to aid you in selecting the proper resin for your application. 

You can find more information on NSF certification in the Compliance Section of TPG’s Website.
