A new resin that meets existing & new water standards

Introduced recently at the Fakuma trade fair (Friedrichahafen, Germany), a new Noryl resin not only complies with current European and global sustainability regulations regarding materials used in potable water systems, but also with new tougher regulations slated to go into effect in 2016. Noryl FE1630PW resin is a 30% glass-reinforced polyphenylene ether (PPE) that offers “excellent” hydrological performance in both cold and hot water systems, says the producer. This next-generation resin meets tightening global specifications regarding compliance of glass-fiber and sizing with U.S. and European food-contact requirements. Applications include hydroblocks for boilers used for heating and drinking water, faucet cartridges and shower-head parts. — Innovative Plastics, Saudi Basic Industries Corp.
