Rivercyclon® DW receives AS/NZS 4020:2018 Certification for Contact with Drinking Water


Melbourne, Australia, February 18, 2024 – Rivertex, a leading supplier of innovative textile solutions, is pleased to announce the release of our new Rivercyclon® drinking water range, in conjunction with approved certification to Australian and New Zealand drinking water standard 4020:2018.

This certification validates that the Rivercyclon® 385 DW, Rivercyclon® 455 DW, and Rivercyclon® 595 DW products 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. This 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 the worlds second most recycled polymer, and 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  all Rivertex warehouses, offering customers immediate access to reliable and certified solutions for their drinking water applications. As the Rivercyclon® DW range grows, additional international certifications will be sought, including, BS6920, WRAS & NSF61.
