A step in the right direction.
For many years it has proven difficult for cement lining companies to provide a cement-mortar pipe lining product to satisfy the strict NSF-61 requirements specified by Engineers, purchasers and their clients. In the past, cement coatings companies would either need to be clever and crafty with their explanation of NSF certification or simply have it removed from the requirements all together.
Not any longer! In 2010 Hydrastone Inc. introduced the CSA/NSF-61 certified and ANSI/AWWA compliant, high performance cement lining product called: “HydraKrete-61”
At HydraStone, our goal with HydraKrete-61 is not to create a new product, but to simply enhance an already long-established and well-known cement lining product that is used by the majority of cement lining companies throughout the world. Utilizing the already ANSI/AWWA compliant sand/cement base mix, and with testing and careful formulating by the HydraStone Team, we have created a product to appease all our clients. HydraKrete-61 is a high performance cement lining product designed specifically for lining the potable watermains that provide our faucets with safe, clean drinking water. CSA/NSF-61and ANSI/AWWA regulations are essential requirements for all components associated within our fresh water systems.
