FGG/BM/CZ™ System Compatible Program Adds J.C. Whitlam Plumb-Pro Power Seal Plus.

Published on 2008-06-25. Author : SpecialChem

CLEVELAND -- J.C. Whitlam Plumb-Pro Power Seal Plus sealing compound has been added to the The Lubrizol Corporation'sFGG/BM/CZ System Compatible Program.

J.C. Whitlam's Plumb-Pro Power Seal Plus is a non-drying, white, pure PTFE-based sealing compound. The product is specially formulated for the fire sprinkler industry for use on CPVC piping products and meets federal specification TT-S-1732.

The FGG/BM/CZ System Compatible Program tests and monitors ancillary products on an ongoing basis to ensure chemical compatibility with FlowGuard Gold®, BlazeMaster® and Corzan® CPVC piping systems.

Products qualify for the program by undergoing rigorous testing, which assures that the product will not fail as a result of chemical incompatibility. Because CPVC products are made with base resins having different molecular weights and varying chlorine contents and compound additives, the FGG/BM/CZ System Compatible Program can only verify chemical compatibility with the products with which they have been tested.

Products in the program display the FGG/BM/CZ System Compatible mark on their label. This mark quickly assures installers that the product is chemically compatible with FlowGuard Gold, BlazeMaster and Corzan CPVC products. Only manufacturers that have passed these specific chemical compatibility tests are able to place the FGG/BM/CZ compatible mark on their product labels. Product manufacturers agree to not change the formulation of the products accepted into the System Compatible program without advance written notice and to submit the products to periodic testing to ensure the product remains chemically compatible.

The FGG/BM/CZ System Compatible Program is the only known program of its kind in the industry designed to increase user confidence and help eliminate the guesswork about which products are chemically compatible. The program is in active use in the United States, Canada, Mexico, 25 European countries, the United Arab Emirates, India and China.

FlowGuard Gold®, BlazeMaster® and Corzan® are registered trademarks of The Lubrizol Corporation. FGG/BM/CZ™ is a trademark of The Lubrizol Corporation.
