Fluoramics Receives NSF International Certification

Noria news wires

Fluoramics recently received certification from NSF International for three of its products — LOX-8 Grease, LOX-8 Paste and Formula-8. Each product is now approved for use in food processing and handling facilities throughout the United States.

The NSF program is a continuation of the U.S. Department of Agriculture's product approval and listing program, which is based on meeting regulatory requirements, including Title 21 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) for appropriate use, ingredient and labeling review. NSF International is the only independent organization that provides product registration for non-food compounds such as lubricants, thread sealants and chemicals used in food processing machinery.

LOX-8 Grease is a non-flammable and non-toxic lubricant that is both oxygen safe and waterproof. Engineered to prevent stainless-steel galling, it can withstand extremely high and low temperatures, and is not affected by harsh chemicals such as chlorine and ammonia.

LOX-8 Paste is an inert, non-toxic polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) thread sealant that is specifically formulated for high-temperature and high-pressure environments. It can protect stainless-steel fittings from galling and self-welding, and is also approved for use with liquid and gaseous oxygen.

Formula-8 thread sealant is a shear-sensitive paste that sheets out into PTFE strings and tightly seals threaded joints in non-aqueous conditions. It works on all sizes of threads and replaces the need for PTFE tape in most applications. Originally approved in 1969 by the Department of Agriculture, the Formula-8 registration is now updated with NSF approval.
