Tru Design Ball Valves comply with ISO Standard 9093-2 and ABYC H-27 while being certified by Bureau Veritas and IMCI.

The body is manufactured in glass-reinforced nylon composite with high impact and tensile strength. The end result is a composite ball valve that is UV resistant, free from corrosion and electrolysis issues.
The ball and sealing rings of the Trudesign Composite Ball Valves utilize a PTFE polymer which ensures a smooth system operation.

Tru Design Ball Valves FAQ

Q: Do Tru Design composite ball valves require lubrication?
A: They require no lubrication. All you need to do is to make sure that every few months the handle is turned, in order to maintain the good functionality of the valve. The ball valves are manufactured with Teflon impregnated ball running on Teflon rings which require no lubrication. Studies have shown that even after a ball valve was not used for over 12 months they still function fine.

Q: Can you remove the handle from a Tru Design Ball Valve?
A: In case you need to install the ball valve in confined spaces the handle can be removed for ease of installation. Simply follow the steps below:|

  1. Using a sharp blade or screwdriver remove the flat screw cover from the top of the handle (this is located next to the True Design Logo)
  2. With a Phillips head screwdriver remove the Stainless screw and pull the handle away from the valve body
  3. After installation ensure that the handle is put back on and attach the stainless steel screw then cover with the screw cover

Q: Which sealant should I use on TruDesign threads?
A: There is a wide range of sealants you can use but we suggest our most popular marine sealants such as Sikaflex 291i and CT1. You can also use PTFE Thread tape.

Q: Are TruDesign Ball Valves approved / compliant with international standards?
A: Yes for ¾” and above TruDesign Ball Valves assembled with TrueDesign Skin Fittings are compliant to ISO 9093-2 and certified by International Marine Certification Institute (IMCI) and Bureau Veritas.

Q: Can you fit TruDesign Ball Valves to bronze and stainless steel skin fittings?
A: Yes these composite ball valves can be fitted to an existing bronze or stainless steel skin fitting however prior to being screwed together we suggest checking that the bronze is not pitted or corroded from electrolysis and is in good mechanical condition.
