Hernon Self Seeler Sealants Become NSF Certified

Recently, Hernon's Self Seeler grades 604, 615, 616, and 618 became certified to ANSI/NSF Standard 61.

Sanford, FL, April 18, 2011 --(PR.com)-- Hernon is proud to announce that their Self Seeler grades 604, 615, 616, and 618 are now certified to ANSI/NSF Standard 61. This standard indicates that these products have been certified for usage on commercial and residential potable water system components up to 82°C (180°F).

Hernon's line of Self Seeler products are tough, pre-applied sealants for threaded pipe components. Self Seeler is non-hardening, which means that it instantly seals but it can be adjusted and even removed and reinstalled up to 8 times without recoating the threads. Self Seeler is water-based and non-toxic, which allows for safe handling without special precautions. It can also prevent loosening due to vibration because of prevailing torque characteristics.

The pre-applied application of Self Seeler sealants means that the sealant can be applied to threaded components up to 4 years before use. This eliminates application on the assembly line, which can reduce concerns about installation and migration problems. Self Seeler also holds the advantage for field assembly because the parts are always properly coated and ready for installation. Self Seeler can be applied with semi-automatic or automatic applicators such the Hernon AutoCoater 3010.

Self Seeler grades 604, 615, 616, and 618 are also classified by Underwriters Laboratories Inc. for use with gasoline, petroleum oils, natural gas (up to 300 psig), propane, and butane. (Reference UL File Number MH14222)

These certifications and the pre-applied method of application allow Self Seeler sealants to be used in a wide-variety of applications.
