The Use of Plastics alloys in Water Pressure Systems


Applications & Jointing

Plastic Pipes Conference Association # 1995 Edinburgh


The properties of Hep30, an alloy of PVCU, PE and acrylic derivatives are described in terms of performance during handling and installation and performance during service.
Details of tests demonstrate new levels of performance in the product and increased reliability in the long term properties of the plastic alloy. Future developments are described, which have been made possible due to the advanced polymer which has been developed and tested.
