ANSI 61 is a certification by the National Sanitation Foundation given to products which fulfill the regulatory requirements for potable water transport in the US and Canada.
IPG offers a range of durable geomembrane products for lining and directing water flow in
retention ponds, canals, catch basins, ditches and other water holding areas. Aquamaster geomembranes are also used extensively in industrial applications such as conventional and non-conventional oil & gas extraction, above ground tank liners, evaporative ponds and other applications where a high strength, durable barrier is needed, and impoundments. These woven coated fabric geomembrane liners are made with exclusive polyolefin coatings for maximum toughness and abrasion resistance.
IPG’s Aquamaster geomembrane portfolio is comprised of two product families: NovaLinerTM for short term applications with shorter warranties, and ArmorLinerTM for more demanding applications with longer warranty coverage.
Aquamaster geomembrane composition and materials were reviewed and rigorously tested by the NSF for potential contaminants and water leaching. IPG’s Truro, NS manufacturing facility was audited to verify that proper controls were in place to prevent any contamination of the geomembranes, as well as the materials. Moving forward, this inspection will be done on a yearly basis in order to maintain the certification.
“This NSF certification is a real game changer that allows us to expand our Aquamaster line into new markets, while giving the customer the confidence that our products are meeting the highest standards of potable water. This shows that we have a real commitment to safe and clean drinking water, as well as the environment,” states David Martin, IPG Product Manager.
