uPVC Pipes & Fittings
uPVC is a thermoplastic material derived from common salt and fossil fuels. The pipe material has the longest track record of all plastic materials.. uPVC pipes are certified safe for drinking water per NSF Standard 61 and used extensively for water distribution and transmission pipelines throughout the world. uPVC is allowed for waste lines in homes and is the most often used pipe for sanitary sewers.
Further pressure and non-pressure applications in the field of sewers, soil and waste, gas (low pressure), and cable protection soon followed. The material’s contribution to public health, hygiene, and well-being has therefore been significant.
uPVC has high chemical resistance across its operating temperature range, with broadband of operating pressures. Max operating temperature is reported at 140 °F (60 °C), and max working pressure: 450 psi (3,100 kPa). Due to its long-term strength characteristics, high stiffness, and cost-effectiveness, uPVC systems account for a large proportion of plastic piping installations.
