Advanced plastic pipe systems offer major advantages over traditional materials for stormwater applications.
|Light weight||The light weight of Iplex PVC-U stormwater pipes can lead to significant freight and handing advantages|
|High flow rate||Extremely smooth bores precision joints and lack of internal projections ensure unrivaled hydraulic capacity over the total life of the system Flatter grades are possible using PVC-U systems|
|Flammability||PVC-U does not support combustion|
|Non-conductivity||PVC-U is a non-conductor of electricity, and is therefore not subject to galvanic or electrolytic corrosion|
|Tree root Intrusion resistance||Properly made solvent weld joints have been shown to have excellent resistance to the tree root intrusions that cause blockages and infiltration in other systems.|
|Fiting range||The Iplex PVC-U stormwater system contains a complete range of adaptors to enable connection to a wide range downpipes and other pipe systems|
|Low installation cost||The light weight of Iplex Stormwater pipes together wth longer pipe lengths flexibility and the use of narrow trench widths significantly reduces installation costs, the major portion of the total in-situ costs|
