Cincinnati Gasket & Industrial Glass has teamed up with THERMOSEAL to offer their new line of WaterSIL NSF 61 compressed gasket material. WaterSIL carries the NSF / ANSI 61 certification that assures compliance to strict chemical leaching requirements to prevent potential health effects and regulatory problems in drinking water systems.

NSF/ANSI 61 Certified Gasket Materials

Drinking water system components and drinking water system gaskets need to meet three critical standard marks, including:

  • NSF/ANSI 61
  • ASSE 1061
  • ASTM F2854

NSF / ANSI 61 certified gasket materials are designed specifically for use in potable drinking water systems and fixtures for public drinking water, food and beverage, hospitality and plumbing supplies.  THERMOSEAL WaterSIL is specifically formulated to meet the NSF/ANSI 61 standard for sealing materials. It also has excellent dielectric strength properties. The dielectric strength is the maximum working voltage a material can withstand without breaking down, thus limiting corrosion in the pipeline systems.
