Safe products for drinking water

A selection of Real World Epoxies products have recently completed testing under the new potable water standard AS/NZS 4020:2018, and are now approved for use in contact with drinking water​.

Here’s a bit more info on what that means:

  • The standard requires products do not affect the taste or appearance of water, do not support the growth of microorganisms and do not release cytotoxic or hazardous compounds or metals.

  • Typical products tested include pipes, fittings, components, and materials used in coating, protection, lining, jointing, sealing and lubrication in the water supply and plumbing industry.

  • While most water authorities will require this type of certification, it’s also a great feature for any sensitive project wanting proof the coatings being used are as safe as possible.

  • The Jaxxon and Scubapoxy products have been used in the water, wastewater and marine industries for almost 20 years. Scubapoxy has developed a strong reputation with commercial divers for its diver-friendly use and market-leading performance in the toughest coating conditions of all.


You can view the test certificates and find out more on the potable water page of our website.


Take care and keep smiling,
