BPA free copolyester for potable water
BPA-free is important to our customers. Permian Plastics conducted trials on a variety of engineering plastics and selected the BPA-free copolyester TritanTM for this potable water application. The original mold for this valve body was designed for polycarbonate grade. The TritanTM material required a unique mold designed to account for the narrow processing tolerances. TritanTM met the requirements for material and functionality.
