Innovations in drinking water contact applications

Lead leaching into drinking water presents a major health risk. While faucets, water meter components and fitting systems have traditionally used brass, copper, lead, and other metals, regulations on permissible lead levels have been strengthened. This is driving the industry to look for alternative solutions that are completely lead-free.

Our portfolio includes a number of engineering plastics ideal for use in contact with the drinking water supply. These applications are challenging due to long-term exposure to hot water. We have specific grades that have already achieved certification for drinking water applications in our Xytron® polyphenylene sulfide (PPS), EcoPaXX® PA 410, ForTii® and ForTii Ace PPA portfolios.
