What are UPVC Pipes and Fittings?

Aerocon’s UPVC pipes and fittings are a more eco-friendly, far superior replacement for the widely used GI pipes. Unplasticised Polyvinyl Chloride (UPVC) can be used up to 60 C (140 F), making it ideal for cold water applications.

Smart Features and Benefits of Aerocon’s UPVC Pipes and Fittings

1Cost effective and easy to install

  • Are lightweight and cost effective, with low maintenance, labour and shipping costs
  • No electric/heat source is required for installation
  • A simple cutter, chamfering tool and UPVC solvent are the only requirements for 100% leak – proof jointing

2Resistance to chemicals, corrosion and abrasion

  • Do not break down under the harshest of water and service conditions
  • Can be buried directly under concrete slabs as they don’t react with concrete

3Smooth Internal Surface

  • Absence of scaling, pitting and leaching ensures smooth and full bore flow, with no water pressure loss and noise

8

Energy-Efficient

  • Are self-insulating with lower thermal conductivity
  • Built for tough conditions with minimum offsets/ looping

4
Fire Resistant

  • They come with an integral flame-retarding property, with a very high Limiting Oxygen Index (LOI) of 60, and thus, cannot support or sustain combustion

5
Antimicrobial

  • They retard microbial growth and are also suitable for aggressive water with pH levels of less than 6.5

7Suitable for carrying drinking water

  • Are of food grade (heavy metal free), supported by certificates from CFTRI, CIPET and RoHs (TUV)

6Perfect for external use

  • Can be installed outside the building and can withstand temperature up to 60 C
  • Are made of UV-resistant materials, ensuring that they do not lose their mechanical properties even under greater exposure to sunlight
