UPVC stands for Unplasticized Polyvinyl Chloride and is also known as rigid PVC. The term Unplasticized means no additional plasticizing polymers are used in the UPVC making process and hence is the strongest form of PVC. Even though PVC pipes for agriculture, and drainage are also technically UPVC however normally in India UPVC pipes refer to the plumbing pipes commonly used for transportation of cold water for residential, commercial and industrial applications. These pipes are white in color.
In the modern world of plumbing, selecting appropriate materials for your project is pretty essential. And, the material that gains popularity since many years is upvc pipe, that stands for unplasticized polyvinyl chloride. This type of material is a rigid plastic that is highly used in plumbing systems just because of its certain applications. Let’s have a quick look at its features.
Lightweight: The major advantage of the pipes is its lightweight that allows it to possess various benefits. Due to this feature, it is easy to install and handle. This saves effort and time during its installation and also lowers the overall cost.
Corrosion resistant: The most catchy advantage of the pipe is that it doesn’t corrode easily, which results in long term performance without any damage. This feature protects the pipe from harmful degradation that makes it an ideal option.
Durability: It serves as one of the key factors that makes these pipes different from other types of plumbing systems. These pipes are not prone to resistance or rust, that makes it a better option for indoor and outdoor advantages.
Chemical resistance: Moreover, the pipes are resistant to chemicals, which makes it a better choice for use in industrial settings. This ensures longevity of the pipes, which lowers the requirement for frequent replacements.
Minimal maintenance: Maintenance of the pipes is low in comparison to other types of materials. As, its smooth surface avoids buildup of scales.
Plumbing: UPVC pipes are ideal for cold water supply lines in residential installations. These can withstand high pressure so can also be used in high rise buildings.
Industrial Applications: UPVC pipes are used for water supply line in industries for low and medium pressure applications.
Water treatment plants: UPVC pipes are used in water treatment plants for drinking water applications.
Chemical Industry: UPVC pipes are used in the transportation of chemicals and hot corrosive fluids that includes a wide range of inorganic acids, bases used in chemical processing.
