Global PVC Stabiliser Trends for Pipes – Challenges and Practical Experience

Papers # 2012 Barcelona

PVC is a well-established material, globally utilised, in many different applications, such as window profiles, technical profiles, cables and sheets. In Pipes, PVC is used in pressurised potable water applications, as well as sewerage systems, gas piping systems, gutters and fittings. A Global analysis of PVC stabiliser systems in use, for pipe applications, indicated that except North America, where almost exclusively Sn-based stabilisers are used, Pb-based stabilisers have been the dominating system for the past several decades. During recent years, Ca-based stabilisers have been utilised in many regions. In Europe this has now become the most utilised system. The path to where we have arrived involved significant challenges, and it is fair to say that new obstacles appear as the change becomes more advanced. This presentation aims to give an overview of the story so far, recounting practical experience to highlight the challenges seen.

Molecularly oriented polyvinyl chloride (PVC-O) pipe has been found to withstand large ground deformation during seismic events without damage. The properties of PVC-O pipe that support this performance have been investigated in a multi-year testing program undertaken at the Geotechnical Lifelines Large Scale Testing...

NEW TESTING METHOD FOR ELECTROFUSION WELDS

Author(s) : Dr. Love Pallon, Dr. Karin Jacobsson, Daniel Ejdeholm, Marie Allvar, Rikard Kärrbrant 2018 Las-Vegas

This work presents the development of the Full Length Tensile Test (FLTT), a method that enables an objective judgement of welding quality of electrofusion welds by measuring the energy to break (J/mm2 ). In this way a brittle, ductile and transitional mode failure can be differentiated without subjective visual...

EXPANDING THE APPLICATION RANGE OF HIGH DENSITY POLYETHYLENE FOR USE AS AN INNER-LINER MATERIAL IN REINFORCED THERMOPLASTIC PIPE AND STEEL PIPE

Author(s) : Johannes de Bruin, Dr. Bert Dalmolen, Albo van Hateren 2016 Berlin

Normal High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) is commonly used as the fluid contacting element, or the “inner-liner”, in Reinforced Thermoplastic Pipes (RTP) and steel pipes up to 65 ºC. Through a modification of the HDPE polymer matrix, by adding nanoparticles, the E-modulus can be increased. Research shows that...

FLEXIBLE PLASTIC SOLUTION FOR DISTRICT HEATING PIPES

Author(s) : Dr. Anton Vasilenko 2016 Berlin

In today’s world a lot of energy is wasted. More than 50 % of the energy is lost on its way to the customer. The fundamental idea of modern district heating is to recycle heat that otherwise would be lost and to use renewable sources to heat homes. In other words: a market place for green heat that reduces...
