Gastite's transition to FlashShield™ CSST

September 23, 2014

Dear Valued Customer,

Given the continued growth in demand for our FlashShield™ metallically shielded black (conductive) jacketed Corrugated Stainless Steel Tubing (CSST), Gastite® is announcing its plan to shift its production capacity and 100% of its U.S. distribution to what the market has been asking for, the very best and only metallically shielded conductive CSST product currently available on the market, FlashShield.

A complete market conversion to FlashShield will be carried out regionally over the next 6 months, commencing with the South Central Region. Your regional sales manager will be in contact with you well in advance to develop the plan that will affect you and your region. During that discussion, details of the plan will include an inventory assessment and a date for last orders received and last shipments of yellow CSST.

Our FlashShield team is prepared to assist you through this process and will be available to provide the necessary training and certification to your respective contractors. Certification scheduling will also occur during your conversion plan discussion with your regional sales manager. As you know, attention to training and certification is very important as installation requirements of FlashShield, while simple, are different than that of both standard CSST and other manufacturers’ black (conductive) product.

We thank you for your ongoing support of Gastite as it continues to supply the market with the best conductive CSST product available anywhere.
