KTW

The German agency for water and gas DVGW (Deutsche Vereinigung des Gas -und Wasserfaches), has defined a series of recommendations for plastic materials used in the transport of drinking water known by the German abbreviation KTW (Kunststoffe und Trinkwasser) which substitutes the previous national authority on the subject, BGA (Bundesgesundheitsamt) and BgVV (Bundesinstitut fur gesundheitlichen Verbraucherschutz und Veterinarmedizin).

DVGW, through a network of laboratories throughout Germany and northern Europe, first of all examines the suitability of the formulation and then subjects the product to rigorous tests of suitability to the use depending on the final application.

Lati S.p.A., through its Customer Assistance service, is able to support customers in the validation process of its products until this prestigious certification indispensable for the European market is obtained. The vast availability of raw materials from qualified suppliers, has permitted the setting up of specific formulations that have allowed customers to successfully attain this important recognition.
