ResinTech is a global leader in ion exchange for water purification, helping distributors and operators worldwide improve their water quality. The legendary technical expertise of Mr. Mike Gottlieb established years ago continues to be the standard to which we hold ourselves. In addition to their headquarters in Camden, New Jersey, ResinTech maintains operations in West Berlin, New Jersey; Forest Hill, Maryland; Sarasota, Florida; Chicago, Illinois; Gardena, California. Together, their facilities provide millions of cubic feet of ion exchange resin, activated carbon, high purity water systems, and cartridges to customers in over 100 countries every year. And it all started in a basement (“The American way – grassroots, a man, a dream and a supporting family”).
In 1986, chemical engineer, Michael Gottlieb, was a recognized expert in ion exchange for water treatment. Working up through the technical division of companies like Permatit* and Sybron*, he had more than a dozen years of industry experience to his credit when his wife, Lynne, urged him to start his own company, ResinTech. Over the next three decades, the team steadily expanded the business through reinvestment. Each time they moved to a new facility, it seemed they would outgrow it within a few short years. They aggressively acquired small, complementary operations and combined the assets and capabilities to form new business units. They have a number of divisions: resin regeneration services, filterworks, and the laboratory services division. A Regeneration Services division (ACM Technologies) was established to offer offsite resin regeneration, closed-loop wastewater treatment solutions, and RO membrane restoration. A Filterworks division (Aries Filterworks) resulted from acquiring multiple filter cartridge brands (Vaponics, Hydro Components, and others). This division would manufacture standard and custom water purification cartridges and high-purity lab water systems leveraging ResinTech premium media — each made in America. The company purchased more advanced analytic instrumentation and added more technical expertise to create a Lab Services division offering world-class, unbiased resin and water analysis to customers. In 2020, ResinTech opened its new state-of-the-art global headquarters and non-solvent cation plant in Camden, New Jersey, USA. The 360,000 square foot complex is the first new ion exchange factory in the US in more than thirty years. Inside, it manufactures its own ion exchange resin from scratch to rigid specifications without using solvents.
The Permutit Company was founded in March 1913 in New York City, New York. Its industry was water softener products, and its headquarters were in New York City, New York (1913-1966), Paramus, New Jersey (1966-1989), and Warren, New Jersey (1989-1993). In 1957, the company merged with the Pfaudler Company, forming Pfaudler Permutit, Inc. while becoming a subsidiary of that firm. In 1977, the company was sold to Zurn Industries, Inc. and was acquired by the United States Filter Corporation in 1993 (Source and Learn More: https://mycompanies.fandom.com/wiki/Permutit_Company).
Sybron International Corp. is a leading manufacturer of products for the laboratory and professional orthodontic and dental markets in the United States and abroad. The enterprise has acted as a holding company since its inception in 1968. In 1995 Sybron was operating through four subsidiaries: Nalge Co., Erie Scientific Company, Barnstead/Thermolyne Corporation, and Sybron Dental Specialties. By the mid-1980s, Sybron encompassed a diversified group of nearly 20 companies, most of which were engaged in the manufacture of various dental, laboratory, and specialty industrial products. The organization’s sales and assets had rapidly ballooned, and Sybron had become a Fortune 500 company. Principal Subsidiaries: Nalge Company; Sybron Dental Specialties, Inc.; Barnstead Thermolyne Corporation; Erie Scientific Company.

Through ResinTech, the KnowYourH2O team facilitates and offers PFAS / GenX/ PFOA testing services and professional services related to evaluating your source water. The following are the testing services we facilitate
(Premium Package, plus 18 PFAS contaminants)
The Ultra test is an excellent option for testing well water. It covers many minerals/metals and other inorganic compounds that can naturally occur due to the various geologic formations in the area. In addition, this test looks for volatile organic chemicals which can be found due to leaking underground storage tanks and possible nearby industries. Testing also includes radiological contaminants present in all-natural water to help determine if they are present at a safe level. Finally, this package includes testing for PFAS contaminants found in well water located near manufacturing plants, airports, and military bases. This testing package covers all the major cations, anions and physical characteristics, volatile organic chemicals, radiologicals, and PFAS contaminants that are important in determining what water treatment option will work the best given the water quality, including:
• (29) metals and minerals
• (7) other inorganic compounds
• (9) physical characteristics
• (53) volatile organic chemicals
• Radiological contaminants gross alpha and beta
• (18) PFAS contaminants, including PFOA, PFOS, and GenX

PFAS Contaminants (Per-and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances) are commonly referred to as “forever chemicals” and can be found throughout our environment as well as in our drinking water. Previously known as PFCs, they have been widely used in cookware, fast food packaging, stain and water-resistant products, and a key ingredient in aqueous fire fighting foam. There are hundreds of such compounds in use. For this test, ResinTech will quantify the presence of as many as 18 of the most common compounds, including PFOA, PFOS, and Gen X.

PFAS Contaminants (Per-and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances) are commonly referred to as “forever chemicals” and can be found throughout our environment as well as in our drinking water. Previously known as PFCs, they have been widely used in cookware, fast food packaging, stain and water-resistant products, and a key ingredient in aqueous fire fighting foam. There are hundreds of such compounds in use. For this test, ResinTech will quantify the presence of the two most common compounds (PFOA and PFOS).

Because concerns about PFOA and PFAS contamination are typically linked to known releases and spills, we also offer a number of Environmental Database Search Reports such as the Neighborhood Environmental Report, EDR Radius Map with GeoCheck®, and other water quality assessments.

Additional comments from Mr. Peter Meyer, Resin Tech, Inc
“Ion exchange resins such as ResinTech SIR-110- HP have demonstrated a high capacity for PFAS compounds and are currently used to remove traces of PFAS from water. IX resin has an advantage over carbon in that it is much faster kinetically and requires much shorter empty-bed contact times to be effective. In most cases, their throughput capacity greatly exceeds that of granular carbon. Although IX resins work better for the longer chain PFAS compounds such as PFOS and PFOA, they can also remove shorter chain PFAS such as PFBA, PFHxS, and even GenX, albeit with somewhat lower throughput capacity before breakthrough. Regeneration and re-use are possible, although the requirements are somewhat complicated. In most cases, spent ion exchange resins used for PFAS removal are incinerated or otherwise disposed of after use.”
