New Cobalt-Free AOC Resin Has Earned Certification by NSF International

may 21 2012

New Vipel F010-H2O-00 vinyl ester from AOC is certified to NSF/ANSI 61: Drinking Water System Components-Health Effects by NSF International, making it easier for customers to manufacture products for potable water applications. The resin’s cobalt-free formulation also gives it superior corrosion resistance for applications that contain sodium hypochlorite, or bleach.

The NSF/ANSI 61 standard establishes health effects requirements for products, components, and materials used in drinking water systems. “Customers that fabricate products for drinking water use can be assured that this resin conforms to the health effects requirements for NSF 61,” said Fletcher Lindberg, Business Manager for Open Mold, Reinforced Resins. “This makes it faster and easier for those companies to obtain NSF Certification for their products,” said Lindberg. “The Vipel F010-H2O data sheet describes the protocols for customers to follow to meet the requirements,” Lindberg added.

Vipel F010-H2O uses a special catalyst that does not require a cobalt promoter. This feature makes the coating suitable for sodium hypochlorite containment. In contrast, composite materials that use cobalt-based promotion weaken over time when exposed to bleach or sodium hypochlorite.
