Rivertex, a leading supplier of innovative textile solutions, has released a new Rivercyclon drinking water range, in conjunction with approved certification to Australian and New Zealand drinking water standard 4020:2018.

The certification validates that Rivercyclon385 DW, Rivercyclon455 DW, and Rivercyclon595 DW fabrics meet the stringent requirements for materials used in contact with drinking water.

The AS/NZS 4020:2018 certification ensures that products are thoroughly tested and approved for safe use in applications involving contact with drinking water. The approval underscores Rivertex's commitment to providing sustainable, high-quality, safe alternatives to PVC-coated fabrics for a variety of industries, including water storage, aquaculture, and environmental protection.

The Rivercyclon drinking water range offers a versatile alternative to widely used PVC-coated fabrics in various applications such as tank liners, dam liners, pond liners, floating covers and baffles, aquaculture liners and skirts, and flexible tanks. Unlike PVC-coated fabrics, Rivercyclon is a non-toxic, polypropylene reinforced fabric, which is 100% recyclable.

Additionally, it is up to 40% lighter than PVC-coated fabric, offering increased flexibility and ease of use.

"We are thrilled to receive AS/NZS 4020:2018 certification for our new Rivercyclon DW range," said Gavin Hodgins, Managing Director at Rivertex Australia Pty Ltd. "This certification demonstrates our ongoing commitment to providing safe and sustainable solutions for our customers and unlocks a wide array of applications for a large cross-section of our customer base” continues Gavin. 

“With the Rivercyclon drinking water range, customers can trust that they are using products that meet the highest standards of quality and safety whilst also caring for the environment, and ensuring consumers have access to the latest non-toxic technologies in drinking water storage, regardless of the application."

The Rivercyclon DW range is now available from stock in all Rivertex warehouses, offering customers immediate access to reliable and certified solutions for their drinking water applications. As the RivercyclonDW range grows, additional international certifications will be sought, including, BS6920, WRAS & NSF61.

Rivertex Technical Fabrics was established in 1980 and is part of the Basel, Switzerland based Winter Group. Rivertex has subsidiaries in The Netherlands, UK, China and Australia.
