Pipe, PVC

Pipe Tongs are a safe, cost-effective way to move concrete, metal or plastic pipe.

Why just line your failing sewers when you can slipline them with a new Vylon Slipliner Pipe?

Increasingly, sliplining of compromised water pipelines with Fusible PVC is becoming the preferred method of rehabilitation for water lines in congested suburban centers.

A new spiral-wound pressure pipe has been introduced to the North American market for use in water and wastewater systems.

Worldwide demand for plastic pipe is forecast to increase 4.6 percent annually through 2012 to 8.2 billion meters, or 18.2 million metric tons.

One of the issues raised following the retraction of the Plastics Pipe Institute (PPI) press release regarding alleged problems with fused PVC pipe is the role of PPI in the plastic pipe industry.

PPI positions itself as representing all of the industry. In its response to the PPI press release, Underground Solutions Inc. (UGSI) claimed PPI devotes its efforts to promoting HDPE pipe products.

In August, Underground Construction magazine and other industry publications received this brief editorial "bulletin":

"The Plastics Pipe Institute retracts its news release dated June 11, 2008, and its contents therein." There was no mention of what the June 11 press release was about or a summary of what it contained.
