Specialty Polymers Certified for Contact with Drinking Water

Independent organizations around the world, such as NSF, WRc and KTW, write standards and certify products that come into contact with drinking water. They carefully evaluate plastics under expected end-use conditions to ensure that no substances can be extracted that might cause health concerns. Some agencies conducts additional tests to evaluate a material’s effect on taste and odor as well as its tendency to support microbiological growth.

Solvay voluntarily certifies its plastics on a global basis to help Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) expedite the approval process required for components used in cold and hot potable water systems.
