New Delhi, India – NSF, the leading testing and certification organization in the water industry, announced today that Indofil Industries Limited, a research-led and fully integrated Chemical Company, has earned certification to NSF Guideline 533 for its KM40, KM355S, KM455 and KM455L impact modifier products. With this, Indofil Industries Limited becomes NSF’s first client in India to receive this certification and the first client globally to have an impact modifier certified to NSF Guideline 533. This certification demonstrates that their ingredients have been evaluated for health effects and are safe for use in drinking water products.
Founded in 1962, Indofil Industries Limited is headquartered in Mumbai. It has a diverse portfolio, offering products in industries including: leathers, coatings, textiles and plastics chemicals/additives. Indofil operates its facility in Dahej, Gujarat, providing a comprehensive range of products, including acrylic impact modifiers, acrylic processing aids, and medium to high molecular weight acrylic processing aids.
“We are honored to be the first company to earn this certification in India. Utilizing the highly respected NSF mark will increase our competitiveness in the worldwide market and demonstrate our commitment to quality and safe drinking water,” said Dr. Atchutuni Rao, Director at Indofil.
Launched in January 2023, NSF Guideline 533 covers ingredients such as resins, stabilizers, carbon black, lubricants, solvents, and colorants used in CPVC, PE, Nylon, and other materials. It expands NSF’s certification offerings to include ingredients used in drinking water products further strengthening NSF’s commitment to addressing the safety and quality of drinking water products. Certified ingredient manufacturers can use the dedicated NSF mark to demonstrate that their product meets the NSF Guideline 533 requirements as reviewed by a third party.
“We are proud to certify Indofil as the first client to the NSF 533 guideline in India,” said Jyoti Bhasin, Managing Director of APAC and ME, at NSF. “This simple process saves ingredient manufacturers time and money. Ingredient manufacturers who earn NSF Guideline 533 certification can earn more recognition with drinking water product manufacturers worldwide by having their ingredients listed on NSF’s official website. We anticipate more ingredient suppliers will follow suit in manufacturing safer ingredients.”
