- What is the lifespan of PVC pipes?
PVC pipe is as durable as all other thermoplastic materials. Related to chemical degradation of polymers used in pipes. However, unlike other thermoplastic pipes, PVC pipes do not oxidize.
2.Can PVC pipes withstand vacuum? If so, what is the maximum vacuum it can withstand?
PVC piping systems can withstand vacuum. And can operate at low pressure -0.9bar (equivalent to the pressure level of PVC system PN10). For non-pressure and vacuum up to -0.3bar, a PVC sewer system can be used.
- What are the advantages of installing PVC pipes compared to other solutions?
Light weight: PVC pipes are lightweight and easy to handle. The need for mechanical supports to place and secure pipes together is reduced. The result is a cost-effective installation.
Joints: PVC pipe systems can be installed with different types of joints. Save significant costs during installation. Because it avoids the use of complex welding operations and expensive investment in sophisticated equipment and professional skills.
Accessories and special operations: PVC pipe systems are usually equipped with the widest range of accessories and auxiliary products. Runs with modular installation and high quality joints. No complex tools or special expertise are required.
- Is PVC pipe resistant to chemicals?
PVC pipe has excellent chemical resistance. This makes them particularly suitable for a wide range of applications.
PVC is resistant to most oils, fats, alcohol and gasoline. But some gasoline fuels containing benzene can cause swelling
