PVC-U SCJ Pipe & Fittings

Features & Benefits

  • Corrosion resistant

    PVC-U pipes are totally unaffected by soil and water chemicals and will not be affected by anything that can normally be found in sewage effluent.

  • Light weight

    PVC-U pipe is light weight for ease of handling and installation.

Standards for PVC-U pressure pipe

Series 1 PVC-U pipes are manufactured in accordance with AS/NZS 1477 – PVC pipes and fittings for pressure applications.

Standards for solvent cement and priming fluid

Priming fluid and solvent cements supplied by Vinidex comply with AS/NZS 3879 – Solvent cements and priming fluids for PVC (PVC-U and PVC-M) and ABS and ASA pipes and fittings.

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.

Standards

Vinidex recommends that PVC-U SCJ pressure pipes are installed in accordance with AS 2032 – Installation of PVC pipe systems. For further information on PVC Pressure installation please refer to our PVC Pressure Pipe Technical Resources.

PVC-U Solvent Cement Joint Pressure Fittings:

  1. These fittings should not be jointed to solvent cement pipe sockets.
  2. Spigotted fittings are designed for use only with other moulded sockets and NOT with pipe sockets. Moulded fitting sockets are shorter than pipe sockets. Although their OD’s are stated here, spigots have a marginal outside taper to facilitate manufacture.
  3. Spigot length may vary.
  4. Care should be taken not to over tighten. Refer to our Installation Guidelines for procedures.
