KRAIBURG TPE Introduces Thermoplastic Elastomer for Drinking Water Applications

Published on 2021-12-07. Edited By : SpecialChem

drinking-water-TPE KRAIBURG TPE has developed a new TPE for drinking water applications with NSF/ANSI 61-compliance exclusively for the Asia Pacific market.

KRAIBURG TPE’s new TF8ONG-NTRL compound comes in one hardness, namely 80 Shore A with 0.95g/cm density. Its durability and flexibility make it suitable for typical drinking water applications such as tube and hose, elastomer pipe fitting, couplings, flexible pipe fitting, plumbing manifold, and many others.

Grade Meeting Various Testing Standards

Besides fulfilling the NSF/ANSI 61 testing standard under section 4 with cold water (23°C) and domestic hot water applications (60°C), TF8ONG-NTRL also meets the low odor, flavor and total organic compound (TOC) testing standards according to KTW under hot water application (60°C). In addition, the compound exhibits good adhesion with PP.

The compound does not have any curing and crosslinking material in it and meets the (EU) No. 10/2011 Food Contact Plastics Regulation, and US FDA CFR 21 (raw material conformity) quality system regulation.

The TF8ONG-NTRL compound is available in natural color and can be processed via injection molding or extrusion.
