Drinking Water 

High performing plastic supply pipes have become increasingly common, with a variety of materials and fittings employed. With excellent mechanical properties and good chemical resistance, PVC pipes can withstand vigorous movement, making them particularly popular for use in areas where there is periodic land settling.

Pressure pipes are often made from rigid PVC, which possesses excellent mechanical properties, good chemical resistance, low creep and superb durability (MRS). Pressure pipes are manufactured by the extrusion of compact pipes used as drinking water conduits under pressure.

Rigid PVC alone or in combination with other thermoplastics is used to produce fittings. Its brilliant properties include:

  • Excellent mechanical properties
  • Good chemical resistance
  • Transparency
  • Durability
  • Low creep

The injection process is employed in the manufacture of fittings.

The grades used in the manufacture of these products are listed in the table below.
