PVC-U (unplasticised polyvinyl chloride) is one of the most popular thermoplastic materials used for pressure pipework installations.
Light in weight, PVC-U has excellent resistance to chemicals and abrasion, is tasteless and odourless making it ideal for use with potable water systems and most food products. Its extremely smooth bore gives excellent flow characteristics without sediment or deposit.
PVC-U pipework can be used with temperatures ranging from 0°C to 60°C but this varies depending on the class of pipe.
