Lightness: PVC-O systems are lighter and easier to install than other materials. The PVC-O systems formed with ecoFITTOM® fittings and TOM® pipes are between six and twelve times lighter than the ductile iron systems. These advantages can considerably reduce the installation cost at site.
Ductility: The PVC-O pipes and fittings, both have excellent elasticity that allows to recover back to their original shape after being struck or impact while being handled or installed. This ductility property improves crack propagation of PVC-O material and ensures optimal performance once they are installed.
Plug connection system: The efficient design of pipe socket and high-performance rubber seal guarantee a total leak tightness and allow connecting the pipes and the fittings in a efficient way. The plug connection system facilitates the installation and ensures a secure connection between the pipes and the fittings.
Furthermore, PVC-O pipes and fittings are lighter, what makes them easier to install and efficient in comparison to other materials. This can reduce installation period and shorten the project completion time.
Long-term performance: Degradation and scaling of material can be prevented by using polymer pipes such as PVC-O pipes. This is because of their excellent chemical resistance and superior mechanical properties that PVC-O possessed. Hence, leakages and breakages can be avoided during its service life. PVC-O material also have a longer useful life of 100 years in comparison to other pipe materials such as HDPE, Ductile Iron and Steel.
