  • Better flow characteristics
  • Power saving

Heavy Pressure Solvent Cemented Pipes (As Per Is 4985: 2000)

Pipes are available in metric series ranging from 20mm to 50 mm, in a standard length of 6 meters, plain at both the ends. These pipes are joined by use of solvent cement in which mating & fusion between the pipes & fitting takes place creating a homogenous joint. The pipes are in Grey colour & the fittings are dark grey in colour.

ASTM Heavy Pressure Pipes

UV Stabilised Blue & White plumbing pipes are available in sizes from ½” to 4: in Schedule 40 & Schedule 80 series as per ASTM D 1785 standards. These pipes are available in standard length of 3 meters & 6mtrs.

Blue Threaded Pipes

These pipes are threaded at both the ends with threads as per IS 554, BSPT. These pipes can be used in combination with G.I. fittings readily available in the market

White Plain Ended Pipes

These pipes are plain at both ends and can be joined with PVC fittings available in white colour. The joint formed between the pipes & fitting with the help of solvent cement is a permanent homogenous joint.

Advantages over conventional G.I. piping systems

Low transportation cost Ease of handling Lower material & installation cost PVC-U pipe has a smooth surface, which reduces pressure losses and thus conserves electrical energy High corrosion resistance, durable. The solvent cement joints are leak proof and the joint is as strong as the parent material. The joints are tested under pressure as stipulated in the standard. The lengths can be cut to required measurement and joined easily without laborious threading operation.
