BRASTIC™ Patented Technology Improves Sprinkler Installation

ELKHART, IN--(Marketwire - September 23, 2010) -  NIBCO INC. has reinvented fire sprinkler head installation with the introduction of the new BRASTIC™ CPVC sprinkler head adapter fitting.

The revolutionary BRASTIC™ product technology features a large lead chamfer that will not remove PTFE tape or thread sealant, and a robust starter thread that prevents sprinkler cross. The unique over-molded brass insert provides greater resistance to radial stress along the entire length of the sealing threads. BRASTIC™ sprinkler head adapters are dezincification and corrosion resistant and are NSF Certified to meet the requirements for compliance with NSF/ANSI 61, Annex G, in addition to UL/C, FM and LPCB. Developed for use with BlazeMaster® CPVC pressure-rated fire sprinkler systems, BRASTIC™ adapters are available in sizes 3/4" x 1/2" and 1" x 1/2". 

BRASTIC™ sprinkler head adapters are made in the USA, manufactured at NIBCO's Charlestown, Ind., plant.
