Fusion-Tech UV Black piping features a proprietary UV-resistant additive built into the resins for the outer layer of NSF- certified aquatechnik fusion pipe, as well as fittings. The piping meets the certification requirements of the NSF/ANSI 14 standards. It may be extruded in piping diameters from ½ inch through 16 inches. The piping excelled during independent testing, which involved an accelerated aging process that lasted 10,000 hours. Instruments measured the effects of light, oxidation and moisture on the pipes. With an overall UV radia- tion nearing 800 KLy, the test did not show any significant change in physical or chemical characteristics of the material. CHECK OR CIRCLE #132
