Avanti International’s AV-150 Acrylate Gel™ and AV-278 Low Vis Hydro™ are now certified by the Water Quality Association (WQA) as tested and certified as complying with NSF/ANSI/CAN 61 - Drinking Water System Components.
Avanti’s injection grout products are used to stop leaks, stabilize soil, and control groundwater in municipal, industrial, and geotechnical applications around the world. According to Technical Director Roger Borremans, “These products join other Avanti grouts that have earned the potable water certification. The rigorous tests they are put through by WQA per the NSF/ANSI/CAN 61 standard ensures the products are safe to use near drinking water sources.”
Avanti has a growing line of products that are NSF/ANSI/CAN 61 tested and certified including: AV-202 Multigrout, AV-248-LV Flexseal LV, AV-275 Soilgrout, AV-315 Microfoam, AV-330 Safeguard and Ultrafine SD.

Regarding NSF 61, being "certified" vs. being "compliant" means two very different things. “We believe it's important that these products go through proper third-party testing to become NSF certified, not just self-claimed as compliant” says Britt N. Babcock, President of Avanti. “Completing the extensive process of third-party laboratory testing and auditing with WQA validates product safety and consistency – from raw materials to manufacturing facilities to final products. We are proud to offer NSF/ANSI/CAN 61 certified products to our customers!”
