Two potting compounds for hollow fiber water filtration from H.B. Fuller Co.-FE7811 epoxy and UR2187 polyurethane-have been tested and certified to NSF/ANSI Standard 61, Drinking Water System Components - Health Effects. This distinction verifies that the adhesives were tested and met the NSF criterion for filter manufacturing. By using adhesives that carry the NSF mark, H.B. Fuller’s customers can come closer to achieving NSF certification for their finished filters. In some instances, manufacturers using NSF-certified materials can bypass some or all chemical testing when seeking NSF certification of their filter, providing assurance that their finished products meet all requirements.

“While pursuing this certification by NSF International is a significant investment, H.B. Fuller felt it was an important step to take on behalf of our customers,” said Jeff Swoboda, Marketing manager. “H.B. Fuller focuses on perfecting adhesives, including those for the water filtration industry. We will continue to demonstrate this commitment by working in partnership with our customers to help them meet industry requirements.”
