Leverage certified, globally accessible materials to produce high-quality water meters
As demand for hot and potable water systems in emerging economies grows, manufacturers face material supply chain globalization challenges. Any supply chain disruption can lead to production delays, late product launches and lower profit margins. Shifting water contact regulations combined with limited supplies of fully certified materials may slow down part approval processes, which further stalls production. This may result in part producers rushing material program changes as a contingency plan – which may compromise the reliability of end-parts.
To gain a competitive edge, manufacturers need to proactively accelerate brass replacements, identify safe, sustainable and reliable drop in solutions, and improve contingency plans by leveraging multiple trusted materials. DSM’s water meter thermoplastics portfolio addresses the key safety, reliability and sustainability concerns manufacturers face. Our EcoPaXX®, ForTii® and XytronTM solutions comply with key drinking water contact regulations, including NSF 61 and KTW-BWGL, while providing excellent hydrolytic aging performance that minimizes the risk of leaks.
