Information About UPVC
UPVC pipes and fittings show excellent resistance to aggressive environments, both naturally occurring and as a result of industrial activities. They are resistant to almost all kinds of corrosion chemically or electrochemically in nature. Since UPVC is not conductive, galvanic and electrochemical effects do not occur in UPVC pipes.
UPVC Pipe and fittings are frequently used in the following situations,
• For potable and domestic water pipe distribution systems, both main and supply lines
• Sewer and discharge pipe systems
Due to its non-metallic nature, the material used is completely resistant to all metallic corrosion. Aggressive water from soils with high sulfate and low hardness water does not attack UPVC pipes. Therefore, our products are resistant to a wide range of industrial waters and chemicals and provide advantages in long-lasting system life and production costs.
For more information about UPVC's resistance to specific chemical, contact our company. Made of tasteless and odorless material, UPVC pipes and fittings remain neutral to all transported liquids. UPVC is completely inert and is widely used for transporting liquids made for human consumption.
Due to their mirror-smooth interior surfaces, UPVC pipes and fittings have minimal flow loss. Also, internal deposits do not accumulate, a special advantage in the construction of sewage systems.
The physical properties of UPVC pipes are not affected by direct sunlight, wind or rain. However, it is recommended to protect the pipes from direct sunlight to prevent surface browning due to prolonged exposure to direct sunlight. Rigid PVC is not conductive to burning. In case of fire, flames cannot travel in UPVC pipes. Therefore, they offer additional safety when used for both domestic and industrial electrical installations.
UPVC pipes are five times lighter than steel pipe of the same diameter. This reduces transportation costs and facilitates installation in difficult and remote locations. Installation can be done quickly and easily with solvent adhesive welding or rubber seal socket connections. In both cases, a sealed connection is provided. Subsequent maintenance work is also performed with minimal complications and cost.
