The Production and Application of Bioriented PVC Pipe
Renovation # 1988 Bath
A process has been developed to produce bioriented PVC pipes. Due to the biorientation process, the long term strength has been increased by a factor 2. This means that the design stress of bioriented PVC pipes can be twice of normal extruded PVC pipe. The long term stiffness Of the bioriented pipe has been increased by 508. The resistance to stress cracking (crazing) is improved very strongly. Even in very agressive media, no crazing will be initiated. This means that there will be no risk of premature brittle failure, giving this bioriented pipes much more safety in practice.

In this study, it has been demonstrated that a 100 years service-lifetime for non-pressure sewage pipes, solid wall pipes and structured-wall pipes of PE and PP, can be expected provided some basic conditions are met. It has been demonstrated that the resistance to thermo-oxidative degradation of the applied materials...
The possible effects of plastics pipes on drinking water quality are frequently
in discussion and require the highest attention of our industry. On one hand,
the European Commission (EC) is working already long time to set up a
European Acceptance Scheme (EAS), so far without the desired speed. The
Teppfa and Plastics Europe initiated a comprehensive study to provide
quantitative figures of the quality of sewers after long life service of up to
30 years. The overall aim and purpose of the project was to determine which
sewer pipe materials better fulfil the requirements of sustainability in its
After long time of preparation and co-normative research, the new European Acceptance
Scheme for Drinking Water quality (EAS) is progressing now very strongly and will become
in force as officially expected in 2006. So, besides the legally required CE marking showing
the conformity to the Essential Requirements of the...
One of the options for a low-pressure gas distribution system is the use of ductile PVC pipes
and joints. The long-term performance of ductile PVC pipes has been reported in a number of
previous studies. In this paper the long-term performance of the socket joints, in which
elastomeric (NBR) sealing rings are used, is...
In the Netherlands, a gas distribution system of Ductile PVC with elastomeric sealing
ring joints and several special features is already operating to full satisfaction during
more than 35 years. Today, Ductile PVC is the preferred material in this market. The
total length of the gas distribution net is about 110.000...
For reasons of environment and energy
savings, the sales of High Efficiency Boilers have
been stimulated in the last years. The low temperature
flue gas emission which is characteristic for these
boilers, leads to condensation of the flue gases in the
chimney, attacking the masonry. The condensates
