The advent and adoption of NSF/ANSI 61 means that traditional materials used in water sealing applications, such as gaskets and seals fashioned from red rubber, are giving to newer generation materials which are compliant with the requirements of NSF/ANSI 61. When sourcing sanitary service gasket material, buyers should take care to source product from distributors and gasket cutters who can supply product that is NSF/ANSI 61 certified.
Developed by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), NSF/ANSI 61 includes criteria for testing and evaluating products to ensure they do not leach hazardous contaminants into water. Developed by a team of scientists, industry experts and key industry stakeholders, NSF/ANSI 61 establishes minimum criteria for impurities and contaminants that may be released indirectly into drinking water from products, components and materials, including joining and sealing materials such as gaskets and seals.
Teadit style NA1082SAN sanitary service gasket material is specifically formulated to pass criteria established in the NSF/ANSI 61 standard for sealing materials, as well as providing excellent resistance to conductivity. Compressed fiber sheet technology provides mechanical and service characteristics unmatched by standard elastomeric grades.
Style NA1082SAN is developed to allow compliance for drinking water system components with NSF/ANSI 61, from source to tap. Certification to NSF/ANSI 61 provides assurance to a highest level that NA1082SAN is safe for use in drinking water service. An added benefit of style NA1082SAN is that the material has a strong dielectric rating, making it ideal for isolation kit applications where compressed fiber sheet gaskets can be utilized.
