PVC-U Systems Information
PVC-U pipes have been used for pressure applications in Australia since the 1960s, but have a much longer service history elsewhere in the world. Over this time, industry has recognised the many benefits of PVC for pressure pipes: material stability, corrosion resistance, high strength to weight ratio, ease of handling and installation and excellent flow characteristics.
The PVC-U Large Bore Fittings range is a complete range of fittings for solvent cement jointing which is suitable for use in pressure applications, such as irrigation and in the construction of process and service lines to convey industrial fluids. The maximum operating temperature of PVC-U is 60°C. The fittings are compatible with Series 1 PVC-U pressure pipes manufactured to AS/NZS 1477 and Series 1 PVC-M pressure pipes manufactured to AS/NZS 4765. The fittings range is produced using PVC-U resins compliant with the standards EN ISO 1452 and ISO 4422 and in observance of the requirements of DIN 8063 and EN ISO 15493, for the use of plastic pipes in industrial processes.
