FEATURES & BENEFITS :
• LEAD FREE : ASTRAL Aquarius uPVC pipes being lead free so are non-toxic and hence favoured for use in applications such as potable water pipes.
• SOLVENT CEMENT WELDING : Solvent Cement welding is most reliable and proven joining system for 100% leakproof plumbing. Tools required are very simple and inexpensive (pipe cutter and chamfering tool only). It saves labour cost compared to GI and copper plumbing and saves on investment of electrical equipments for electro fusion welding of other polymers.
• MORE PRESSURE BEARING CAPACITY : uPVC solvent joint plumbing system makes its pressure bearing capacity twice than that of the threaded pipe.
• UV RESISTANT : U.V. Acts as a strong catalyst for the oxidation process which breaks down the polymer chains, leading weakness in the pipes and fittings and do loss of hydrostatic strength. Above effect is very much common with materials like PP and PE.
• SAFE FOR POTABLE WATER : uPVC pipes are made from Lead Free and non toxic raw material. OUR uPVC pipes are always safe for potable water.
