TECNOCOAT P-2049 obtains the suitability certificate for use in CONTACT WITH DRINKING WATER
In accordance with BS6920 issued by the NSF laboratories
The UK standard WRAS BS 6920 is defined as the "Suitability of non-metallic materials and products for use in contact with water intended for human consumption with regard to their effect on the quality of the water”.
It is a requirement that all the non-metallic materials which come into contact with water destined for domestic use or the production of food products must comply with the specifications of BS 6920. The BS 6920 standard establishes a series of testing methods which assess the suitability of the materials in terms of the following:
- Transmission of odours and tastes
- Provoking changes in appearance (colour or turbidity)
- Promoting the growth of microbes
- Releasing substances toxic to human health
- Releasing toxic metals
TECNOCOAT P-2049 polyurea has recently passed all the tests required for the WRAS BS 6920 standard conducted by the NSF laboratories.
The NSF laboratories are internationally renowned for their experience and understanding of USA, European and Asian requirements, and produces reports in compliance with ISO/IEC 17025 signed by certified professional engineers.
As a result TECNOCOAT P-2049 has been fully certified as a finish suitable for contact with water destined for human consumption.
All the certificates and test results are available for our clients, in various languages, on our website or from our technical department.
