Designing with RadiciGroup High Performance Polymers results in lead-free and water regulation compliancy, as well as significant system cost reduction...
...due to the high cost of processing and machining new brass alloys and the high environmental impact of end products manufactured in foundries.
Water Distribution covers all the systems that bring and measures water to a building. These include water filtering and metering systems as well as submersible pumps or shut- off valves. In these systems long-term dimensional stability, mechanical properties and resistance to disinfectants at ambient temperatures are required. The type of disinfectants and concentration levels can influence significantly the long term resistance to oxidative degradation of engineering plastics. The replacement of metal by engineering plastics in metering systems is driven by the global restrictions of lead in water.
