Are your valves made from food grade material?

All of our PVC valves (50mm-100mm) are made from a food grade safe plastic. The (150mm) Polyurethane valve is safe to use with food however, strictly speaking are not food grade due to the dye used to colour them. The dye does become inert after the mould is cast and parts of the polyurethane would need to be cut off and ground down to extract the dye. This is of course very unlikely and results in so little of the dye being exposed that it is of minimal risk. If you still have concerns however, the valves can be made in a food grade polyurethane specifically for your order. The food grade polyurethane valves are non-returnable as they are custom orders.


Ozvalves was founded in 1970 by J.Krutsky (pictured) and M.Tucek manufacturing plastic valves and safety valves at their Gosnells Workshop. They became a member of the Plastics Institute of Australia in 1974 and won the Australian design award for their range of push/pull valves in 1977.
