Nye Lubricants Inc. announces that recipe of NSF-61 Certification for Potable Water Lubrication for Fluorocarbon Gel 880FG and 885FG. This new certification now allows Nye to sell these products for commercial water treatment and drinking water for both hot and cold water applications.
Fluorocarbon Gel 880FG and 885FG are two high performance, wide temperature capable synthetic lubricants. They were designed for sealing, damping, and lubricating applications in a variety of industries, including food & beverage and automotive. 880FG and 885FG are heavy viscosity dimethyl silicone greases that are PTFE-thickened. Fluorocarbon Gel 880FG exhibits excellent water resistance and mechanical stability under a wide temperature range. Fluorocarbon Gel 885FG efficiently lubricates automotive cables and can be used on machinery and instrumentation where incidental food contact with food is possible.
NSF-61 Certification provides assurance to customers that Nye products are safe to use in drinking water applications from source to tap. This approval verifies that our lubricants are below the stringent levels set by the NSF, thus ensuring that drinking water is still safe for consumers. Both lubricants are NSF-H1 registered for incidental contact with food. With the NSF /ANSI 61 certification and NSF’s Global Passport, Nye can now offer our customers across the world assurance for their drinking water applications.
