When one of the most well-known brands of plumbing fixtures sought to make a switch to only NSF-certified products in its injection molding operation, the Slide team was there to make it easy.
The manufacturer was using a mix of NSF-certified products along with others not rated as safe for food-related parts, but it wanted to do better. Our distributor assured them it would be no problem to make the switch to using only NSF-certified formulations, adding a few additional Slide NSF-certified products into the mix.
A Slide factory rep and distributor performed an inventory of the products the manufacturer was using. That extensive product list was quickly pared down and Slide NSF-certified substitutes were added to help them achieve their goal. To help with the transition, Slide provided sample products, as well as technical information and support.
As a result, the manufacturer was able to eliminate four mold releases, one rust preventive and one mold cleaner by adding Slide NSF-certified products, which also contain no chlorinated solvents:
- White Rhino Rust Preventive (NSF category H1)
- IPA Isopropyl Alcohol Mold Cleaner (NSF category P1)
- SSL Mold Release (NSF category M1)
The manufacturer was already using Slide’s NSF Category P1 Mold Cleaner 4 among other Slide products and is very happy with the results.
Consistently High-Quality Products with Food Safety Rating
“It was a pretty seamless switch,” says distributor David Gatling, Steel Sales, Arkansas. The Slide team, he added, made it very easy for him to guide the customer through the switch. “I’ve been selling Slide Products for over 20 years and Slide has always been very proactive in developing equally effective products when a different formulation is needed for food safety or to meet a higher standard for environmental safety”, he said. “They are really kind of ahead of the game.”
