National Coatings' SRC 720 Receives NSF Protocol P151 - Health Effects from Rainwater Catchment System Components Certification
CAMARILLO, California – May 22, 2017 -National Coatings Corporation (NCC), announces that the Silicone Roof Coating SRC 720 received NSF Protocol P151 - Health Effects from Rainwater Catchment System Components certification.
Rainwater catchment systems are those which collect rainwater for use as potable water, and are commonly found in tropical areas such as the U.S. Virgin Islands and Bermuda. To ensure the health and safety of those using this method, NSF created the Rainwater Catchment System Components program. This program establishes testing guidelines for products that come in direct contact with rainwater that is used for drinking. The foundation of this program is NSF P151, a protocol created by a team of NSF scientists and water quality experts that confirms rainwater catchment products do not impart contaminants into the water at levels that exceed U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) drinking water regulations or advisories.
“There has always been a demand for rainwater catchment through several areas of the US,” says Chris Whitehouse, National Sales Manager. “National Coatings has listened to our customers’ needs and will continue to provide valued solutions whenever possible.”
