Paint wetting impairment substances (PWIS / LABS) can disrupt a surface's complete and uniform coating, resulting in lacquer errors and defects of the final products. To prevent PWIS from getting into the application, all the necessary components need to be exceptionally clean. More than 30 years of experience and our in-house testing capabilities enable us to supply every application with the required product giving our customers peace of mind and a well-trusted partner on their side.
Cleaned products according to VDMA 24364 B2
The German professional association VDMA released standardized guidelines in 2018 describing different requirements and testing procedures to classify products used in lacquer applications. Cleaned Products by GF Piping Systems fulfill all the standards of the test category B2, proving to be safe for usage in applications with indirect lacquer contact such as pre-treatment of surfaces.
Five steps to guarantee clean products and safe operation
We at GF Piping Systems can guarantee application fit and customized clean solutions to every customer no matter the complexity of the project and the application's requirements. With the following five steps, we can ensure the clean and safe operation of sensitive fields of application. Piping components like fittings and valve parts can also be cleaned on request, enabling every customer to avoid over-specification and meet the operation requirements.
Fittings and valve components from GF Piping Systems are produced under clean conditions, and there are only non-silicone-based release agents used during manufacturing.
To ensure the required cleanliness of the product, fitting and valve components are cleaned additionally in a unique cleaning process. This cleaning process takes place in a dedicated room where the parts are cleaned with deionized water.
For specific product parts, lubrication is necessary for the functionality of our products – for instance, for dynamically stressed sealing materials in valves. Choosing the correct lubrication for your applications is critical to ensure failsafe operation.
The final, clean product gets packaged up to two times to protect it while being stored and shipped to the destination.
We can guarantee and prove LABS-compliancy thanks to our in-house testing capability and our experts. The LABS-compliancy statement can be presented on request.
