A new European meta-study on the service life of plastic pipes for pressure and non-pressure applications

A new European meta-study on the service life of plastic pipes for pressure and non-pressure applications has confirmed that actual lifetimes can be expected to be over 100 years. The study with the title ‘100 years lifetime of plastic pipes,’ was and commissioned by TEPPFA, the European Plastic Pipes and Fittings Association and undertaken by the Polymer Competence Centre in Leoben, Austria. It is a statistical analysis based on independently verified research and findings from existing literature on the expected service lifetime of plastic pipes and can be downloaded from the TEPPFA website, here.
