Meeting customer needs for water contact safety

In many water distribution applications, the brass pipes, fittings, meters, pumps and valves of traditional water systems are being replaced by more flexible polymer alternatives. When used in drinking water networks and appliances, these materials must comply with stringent water and food contact regulations. TECHNYL® SAFE’s polymer solutions for the water management market are designed to meet the most demanding application performance criteria along with ever stricter regulations governing water contact safety. 

DOMO is one of the few suppliers worldwide to offer full European and American certification for its portfolio of water system materials, including ACS, WRAS, KTW-BWGL and NSF-61. All DOMO drinking water-contact materials are produced in accordance with relevant Good Manufacturing Practices to guarantee the maximum level of safety. 

DOMO’s technical team has a deep understanding of the needs of the water management market as well as the know-how to meet them. This is all at the service of manufacturers to optimize the efficiency of their production and products. 

TECHNYL® SAFE’s sustainable solutions for water management is based on a portfolio of PA66 and PA610, partially bio-based polyamide grades. 

Why you should choose TECHNYL® SAFE

TECHNYL® SAFE polyamide formulations are stabilized to prevent oxidation and plasticization when in contact with water, resulting in lower water absorption rates better dimensional stability and higher mechanical performance retention. 

Moreover, the oxidation stabilization package added to TECHNYL® SAFE polymers prevents further degradation, even if chlorine content is increased. 

Key applications of TECHNYL® SAFE

TECHNYL® SAFE polyamides provide sustainable solutions for water distribution networks, food certified materials, and potable water materials. This portfolio of polymers meets the highest of standards required for optimum performance in such applications as  circulation pumps, valves, fittings, hydraulic components, water meters, water softeners, boiler components, water purifiers and desalination systems.  

Customer commitment

The APT (Application Part Testing) laboratory in DOMO Chemicals’ Engineered Materials division is well equipped to test specimens and final parts for water management applications. Key properties can be evaluated under even the most extreme conditions, including a chlorine test bench. Water temperature, pressure, flow rate, concentration of substances like oxygen and chlorine, as well as pH, and other parameters can all be modified and controlled. Results from the tests make it possible to forecast performance over entire envisaged product lifetimes. 

In addition to the APT, customers can also benefit from DOMO’s Service HUB, a unique platform of connected services and dedicated experts. This includes MMI TECHNYL® Design predictive simulation, which brings together advanced services to provide customer innovation with enhanced capabilities and synergies, eco-design agility and cost optimization. As a TECHNYL® customer, you can choose from among a complete portfolio of services – from material selection to prototyping – to accelerate your time-to-market.
