Material Efficient Products
Vinidex products are installed daily in projects critical to the effective and efficient use of water, management of wastewater, delivery of gas and protection of electrical and communications assets. At Vinidex we recognise the importance of incorporating environmental sustainability into our business strategies. One of the ways we do this is by developing and promoting material efficient products. These products offer the same or, in some cases, superior engineering performance to established products while using less material in their manufacture. This produces savings in the use of raw materials, energy, transportation and installation costs. A selection of Vinidex material efficient products is highlighted below
Vinidex Supermain® Oriented PVC pressure pipe is the most technically advanced PVC pipe available. Molecular orientation enhances the mechanical properties of the material conferring considerable performance advantages. Supermain® requires less energy to produce and uses half the material of conventional PVC pipe. These environmental and engineering advantages mean Supermain® is the high-performance, cost-effective pipe material choice for pressure applications.
StormPRO® & SewerPRO®
Vinidex material efficient twin walled corrugated polypropylene stormwater and sewerage pipe is produced with reduced raw materials. It has long life, is durable and is recyclable at the end of its life. StormPRO® and SewerPRO® have less exfiltration than old materials, reducing pollution and have less infiltration which means savings on treatment costs due to lower volumes being treated.
Vinidex Corflo® is high performance double-wall PVC pipe with a smooth internal bore and corrugated exterior for electrical and stormwater applications. It complements the Vinidex range of material-efficient PVC pipes.
Vinidex Hydro® MPVC is a modified PVC suitable for pressure applications for potable water, irrigation, fire fighting and some general industrial applications. Vinidex Hydro® offers improved material performance and hydraulic efficiency. Vinidex Hydro® PVC-M extends the proven benefits of PVC pipes with enhancements in fracture behavior and hydraulic efficiency. Depending on size and class, Vinidex Hydro® offers weight savings in excess of 10% over normal PVC.
