technology

BRIDGEWATER, N.J. -- April 17, 2013

Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics proudly announces the introduction of the
new Sani-Tech^® SIB^®3 high-speed fusion welding tool for the fabrication and
installation of high purity water piping systems. Sani-Tech high-purity piping
is used in the delivery of highly purified water including USP purified, USP
WFI, and RO/DI. The new SIB 3 is reliable, compact, lightweight and easy to
operate. It performs beadless welds in a fraction of the time and labor
required by other available systems.

The SIB ^ 3 is engineered to join either Sani-Pro^® K PVDF or Sani-Pro T
polypropylene. Both of these high-purity materials meet or exceed USP Class VI
and FDA 21 CFR 177.2510 or CFR 177.1520. Saint-Gobain’s unique SIB (smooth
inner bore) technology features a smooth inner surface free of weld beads,
crevices or intrusions and eliminates areas of particle entrapment and flow
restriction. Sani-Pro K accommodates operating temperatures up to 80°C (175°F)
and is the material of choice for pharmaceutical, high-purity chemical and
semiconductor applications. Sani-Pro ^ T is extremely tough and durable and is
an excellent choice for most moderate service applications.

The PC-based SIB 3 system allows users to store and print weld cycle data for
piping system validation. The programmed weld cycles are activated through a
simple, easy-to-read touch screen. The lightweight, remote weld head enables
welds to be made in limited access locations such as overhead installations.
Cost-effective installation now enables systems owners to take full advantage
of all the benefits of a non-metallic piping system, including reduced labor
costs, maintenance costs and downtime.
