Plumbing

Very few industries impose more stringent standards than plumbing in terms of safety and health, especially with respect to choosing materials for products coming into contact with water. Solvay’s unique portfolio of plumbing products has been formulated to ensure safe usage in drinking water systems. Solvay is one of the few material suppliers worldwide to offer full European and American certification, including ACS, WRAS, KTW, W270, and NSF-61. Customers in any industry involving water and food contact can design and develop their components safely and freely with confidence using Solvay polyamides. 
Solvay Engineering Plastics Technyl® (PA 6.6) materials can effectively replace brass and other high-cost polymers in standard plumbing applications, providing excellent mechanical performance in low temperature environments, with the added benefit of increased processability. 
Solvay is one of the first companies to offer an innovative PA6.10 material specifically formulated for the plumbing market. Solvay’s Technyl® eXten (PA 6.10) materials provide all the same benefits as 6.6, plus lower water-uptake, yielding exceptional dimensional stability and chlorine resistance while maintaining strong mechanical performance. The added benefits of PA 6.10 materials enable using these polyamides in more demanding applications than standard PA 6.6 materials, notably with higher temperatures and providing longer product life.
