Back PVC-U


PVC-U pressure pipes are manufactured from unplasticised polyvinyl chloride polymer (a thermoplastic material) using the extrusion process. PVC-U pipes were introduced into Australia in the early 1960's and is now widely accepted for use across many applications. Their high strength weight ratio together with exceptional resistance to corrosion or chemical attack make these pipelines ideal for major infrastructure applications.


PVC plastic pipe systems offer major advantages over traditional materials including corrosion resistance, installation economics, operating efficiencies and significant reductions in maintenance costs. The following outlines some of the features and benefits of PVC pipes. 

Features Benefits
Excellent internal/external corrosion resistance  Long service life  
Electrically non conductive  Do not suffer from electrolytic corrosion  
Reiber rubber ring  Reduced jointing effort and improved reliability  
Light weight Ease of handling and reduced laying costs
