DAVISON, MI — Fernco Inc. proudly unveiled the 6000 Series Pipe Coupling, designed to meet the stringent Build America Buy America (BABA) and American Iron and Steel (AIS) requirements mandated for Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF) projects. With AIS and BABA compliant stainless-steel components, this specification ensures compliance within the appropriate regulations while delivering exceptional performance and reliability in below ground sanitary or storm sewer systems.

Designed for permanent installation in below ground sewer systems, the Fernco 6000 Series Coupling fulfills the requirement of being permanently incorporated into the project. Key features of the Fernco 6000 Series include AIS compliant stainless-steel components, Type B compliance with the ASTM C1173 standard, enhanced security for larger couplings, and comprehensive installation instructions.

“Compliance with BABA and AIS regulations is paramount for CWSRF projects, and Fernco is committed to providing solutions that meet and exceed these standards," said Ron Goldie, National Waterworks Sales Manager at Fernco. "With the introduction of the AIS compliant 6000 Series Coupling, contractors and municipalities can trust Fernco to deliver quality pipe couplings that adhere to regulatory requirements while delivering superior performance. As an American manufacturing company, it is an honor to offer high-quality products made right here in the USA, ensuring reliability, and supporting local manufacturing.”

According to the EPA, compliance with AIS regulations means that the product must be produced in the U.S. or otherwise covered by a waiver. Fernco assures that all manufacturing processes for the 6000 Series couplings meet the requirements outlined by AIS and BABA regulations.
