Metraflex Products meet NSF/ANSI 372-2011 requirements
Following NSF 372, Metraflex has tested and modified virtually every product to comply with the new lead free requirements that take effect January 1, 2014.
It is simple to determine each of our lead free products. Our submittal drawings will contain the following paragraph:
The wetted surface of this product contacted by consumable water contains less than one quarter of one percent (0.25%) of lead by weight. Material complies with state codes and standards, where applicable, requiring reduced lead content.
Only four of our hundreds of products do not currently meet the new lead-free requirements:
1) Bronze Trim Check Valves
2) Bronze Strainers
3) Bronze Butterfly Valve
4) Elastoflex Hoses
Our testing is done by an independent and ANSI accredited lab and we perform random tests on incoming shipments of finished and raw materials.
