The increase in strength. toughness and ductility of biaxially oriented PVC permits the use of higher design stresses with improved overall performance.
The resulting larger bore reduces pumping costs. Alternatively, for the same head there is a greater flow carrying capacity than would be the case for the equivalent PVC-U or PVC-M pipe.
|Excellent internal/external corrosion resistance||Long service life|
|Electrically non conductive||Do not suffer from electrolytic corrosion|
|Rieber rubber ring||Reduced jointing effort and improved reliability|
|Light weight||Ease of handling and reduced laying costs|
