Supermain Oriented PVC pressure pipe
Vinidex Supermain biaxially oriented PVC-O is the most advanced PVC pipe available with exceptional toughness, long term performance and hydraulic capacity. The ideal pipe for potable water supply, sewer rising mains, recycled water systems, irrigation systems and pumping systems
Vinidex introduced Supermain PVC-O pipe in 1985. After almost 30 years the product has a proven long term performance record and is considered to be the most advanced PVC pressure pipe available. It is light and tough, has the highest hydraulic capacity and the lowest embodied energy of any commonly used pipe. Supermain PVC-O delivers much more for your money.
Put simply, the PVC in Supermain is up to twice as strong as conventional PVC materials allowing less material to be used in the pipe wall to achieve the same pressure rating. This results in a larger internal bore and hence higher flow for the same pressure or less pressure being required for the same flow. This can make a significant difference to the initial cost of a project as well as the ongoing operational costs.
Supermain biaxially oriented PVC-O has exceptional long term performance and life. Any cracks that may develop in the material matrix are arrested by the unique structure of the biaxially oriented material. Cracks are prevented from propagating radially which generally renders them harmless.
Vinidex Supermain PVC-O is a biaxially oriented pipe. This means that the molecular orientation is both in the circumferential direction and the axial direction. This dual orientation maximises the strength and performance of the material and pipe. Some lesser PVC-O products are only oriented in one direction. Make sure you get the most for your money and specify Vinidex Supermain PVC-O.
Pipes are available in both Series 1 and Series 2 with a pressure rating up to PN20.
Vinidex Superlink DI fittings are designed to be used with oriented pipe and are the perfect match with Supermain. They feature full depth sockets which are required to allow for full expansion and contraction of the pipe.
