ST. PAUL, MN, July 29, 2010 -- H.B. Fuller Company, a leading global adhesives provider, has received notification from NSF International that two of its potting compounds (FE7811 Epoxy and UR2187 Polyurethane) for hollow fiber water filtration have been tested and certified by NSF to NSF/ANSI Standard 61 - Drinking Water System Components - Health Effects. While H.B. Fuller has had the adhesive knowledge and experience to help its water filtration customers meet their performance needs, the company's formulations can now also help them achieve their certification objectives.

This is an important distinction that gives customers confidence that NSF Certified H.B. Fuller adhesives have been tested and meet this important criterion for filter manufacturing. Using innovative adhesives that not only perform consistently but also carry the NSF Mark brings H.B. Fuller's customers closer to achieving NSF Certification for their finished filters. In some instances, manufacturers using NSF Certified materials can bypass some or all chemical testing when seeking NSF Certification of their filter, providing assurance that their finished products meet all requirements.

"While pursuing this certification by NSF International is a significant investment, H.B. Fuller felt it was an important step to take on behalf of our customers," said Jeff Swoboda, H.B. Fuller marketing manager. "H.B. Fuller focuses on perfecting adhesives, including those for the water filtration industry. We will continue to demonstrate this commitment by working in partnership with our customers to help them meet industry requirements."
