NSF/ANSI/CAN Standard 600

Important Upcoming Changes to Regulations for Potable Water Linings

On January 1, 2023, NSF will implement a new health requirement called NSF/ANSI/CAN Std. 600 (NSF 600) which will require all coatings in contact with potable water to meet new, lower extraction levels. These new limits will severely restrict available product offerings from most coating and lining manufacturers and only coatings with extractables of xylene less than 0.09 mg/L, ethylbenzene less than 0.14 mg/L and toluene less than 0.06 mg/L, will be certified for use on potable water structures and components.

Tnemec Company is well-prepared for these changes and has already certified Series 22 Epoxoline, Series FC22 Epoxoline, Series 91-H20 Hydro-Zinc, Series 94-H20 Hydro-Zinc and Series 406 Elasto-Shield for NSF 600 requirements. In the coming months, Tnemec will also introduce innovative NSF 600-compliant formulations to further expand our customers' coating choices.

To learn more about NSF 600 and its effect on coating selection and specification, watch the video below and download our tech bulletin. Or, for further assistance, contact your local Tnemec representative.
