Introduction About PVC Presure Pipes

PVC pressure pipes are manufactured from unplasticised polyvinyl chloride polymer (a thermoplastic material) using the extrusion process. PVC (also known as PVC pipes are widely accepted for use in water supply, irrigation and sewerage rising mains.

Their high strength to weight ratio together with exceptional resistance to corrosion or chemical attack makes these pipes ideal for major infrastructure applications.

KAWSAR PVC pressure pipes meet the requirements of AS/NZS 1477 "PVC pipes and fittings for pressure applications" and the Water Services Association of Australia (WSAA) Reticulation Code WSA 03
