Standards for PVC-U pressure pipe

Polydex® Series 1 pipes and Vinyl Iron® Series 2 pipes are manufactured in accordance with AS/NZS 1477 – PVC pipes and fittings for pressure applications.

Standards for rubber rings

Rubber rings for jointing Polydex® and Vinyl Iron® pipes are manufactured in accordance with AS 1646 – Elastomeric seals for waterworks purposes. Assembled rubber ring joints are also subjected to a variety of internal and external pressure testing to verify the joint design and long term performance.

Contact with drinking water

PVC-U pipes comply with the requirements of AS/NZS 4020 – Testing of products for use in contact with drinking water. This Standard specifies a series of type tests, which are carried out in order to demonstrate that the product does not have a detrimental effect on the quality of drinking water. It assesses the effect of the pipe on the taste, odour and appearance of water as well as the health aspects due to growth of microorganisms and leaching of toxic substances.
