Their extrusion plants produce pipes up to a diameter of 630 mm.

The company produces the following products in different dimension ranging from 8 – 1000 mm for a wide variety of molded parts.

PVC-U Material

PVC has increased heat deflection, chemical resistance and is particularly resistant to chlorine attacks.

Material:

Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is an amorphic thermoplastic resin, RAL7011.

Standards/approvals:

• DIN EN 1452
• Corresponds to the KTW recommendation of the Federal Environmental Agency (UBA)

 

Characteristics:

• Good resistance to chemicals
• Weather resistance
• Excellent processing capability
• Flame retardancy

Joining Method:

• Bonding

PE100 Material

The polyethylene injection moulded fittings are characterized by excellent physical and mechanical properties. This results in diverse applications. Through the fine surface structure, PE moulded fittings are an ideal material for transporting gases and fluids.

The excellent UV-resistance offers the possibility of outdoor installations without the effort of additional protective measures. Our moulded fittings have been proven for decades in gas and water supply.

Material:

Polyethylene (PE100) classified according to the minimum long-term strength (MRS), colour black.

Standards/approvals:

• EN 1555 for the gas supply
• EN 12201 for the drinking water supply

Characteristics:

• Low net weight
• UV resistance
• High resistance to chemicals
• High impact strength at low temperatures
• Corrosion resistance
• Light and weather resistant
• High abrasion resistance
• Excellent processing behavior

Joining methods:

• Electrofusion
• Buttfusion
• Flange connection

PP-R Material

Compared to PE, PP-R has higher rigidity, particularly in the upper temperature range. The high resistance to chemicals and good long-term properties compared to many other materials, even at high temperatures, are characteristic for PP-R.

Material:

PP-R (Polypropylene-Random-Copolymerisate) with high molecular weight and high-heat stabilized, RAL 6017 May green.

Standards/approvals:

• DIN EN ISO 15874
• DVGW (German Association for Gas and Water Applications)
• Corresponds to the KTW recommendation of the Federal Environmental Agency (UBA)

Characteristics:

• Good resistance to chemicals
• Weather resistant
• Excellent processing

Joining methods:

• Heating element socket welding
• Heating coil socket welding
• Heating element butt welding

PP-RCT Material

A new generation of material, thanks to its structure, pipes and fittings can be produced with higher hydraulic capacity or with higher compressive strength. This means that – for the same application case – if the pipes are produced with thinner walls, they have higher flow capacity with a consistent outer diameter.

In contrast, PP-RCT pipe can be subject to higher pressures than the previous PP-R pipes, with the same outer diameter and the same wall thickness.

Material:

Polypropylene-random-copolymer with a modified crystalline structure and increased temperature resistance, RAL 6024 traffic green.

Standards/approvals:

• DIN EN ISO 15874
• DIN 8077/ 8078
• Corresponds to the KTW recommendation of the Federal Health Agency (BGA).
• WRAS
• NSF

Characteristics:

• Good resistance to chemicals
• Weather-resistant
• Excellent processing capability

Jointing methods:

• Socketfusion
• Electrofusion
• Buttfusion

PP Industrial Material

Plastic pipes and moulded parts in the PP-Industrial range generally have all of the advantages, which have been tried-and-tested for decades in all areas of industrial application. Particularly the outstanding resistance to corrosion guarantees a long-lasting and durable service life.

Material:

PP-R (Polypropylene-Random-Copolymerisate) with high molecular weight and high-heat stabilized, RAL 7032 Pebble grey

Standards/approvals:

• DIN EN ISO 15874
• DIN 8077
• DVGW (German Association for Gas and Water Applications)
• Corresponds to the KTW recommendation of the Federal Health Agency (BGA).

Properties:

• Good resistance to chemicals
• Weather resistant
• Excellent processing capability

Joining technology:

• Heating element socket welding
• Heating coil socket welding
• Heating element butt welding

They have a delivery service that is fast, customized and flexible. The requirements for this standard have been improved again with the investment in a state-of-the-art high-rack warehouse with an installation space of 7,500 m2 that accommodates the entire product range.
