NSF – 51 Certification

Ultracera® is proudly endorsed by the National Health and Safety Foundation (NSF).  An NSF certification ensures the products we provide meet strict standards for public health protection.

Our NSF certification lets you know Ultracera® complies with strict standards and procedures imposed by NSF. Extensive product testing and material analysis, guarantee our product’s development is thoroughly evaluated before it can earn an NSF certification.

NSF requires regular on-site inspections of our manufacturing facility and repeated testing of products to confirm we continue to meet the same high standards required to maintain certification over time.

ULTRACERA® DOES NOT RELY ON MINING QUARTZ AGGREGATES

Ultracera® is as heavy, durable, and aesthetically pleasing as existing solid surface products, without relying on quartz aggregates, which naturally vary in characteristics and are environmentally damaging to produce due to sand mining.

Sand mining is the world’s largest mining endeavor, responsible for 85 percent of all mineral extraction. It is also the least regulated, and quite possibly the most corrupt and environmentally destructive process.

Satellite images from 1995 and 2013 show the impact of sand mining on the waterway connecting China’s Poyang Lake and the Yangtze River. – NASA EARTH OBSERVATORY
