For more than 70 years HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) has been discovered accidentally during an experiment in the 1950s. Since then, HDPE has completely revolutionized human life. With outstanding properties of HDPE such as strong and durable, Resistant to heat and chemical, HDPE is used as a raw materials in the production of consumer products such as water bottles, shampoo bottles, toys, water pipes and many more.
HDPE pipes are manufactured from High Density Polyethylene polymer used as pressure pipes for many applications such as drinking water systems, Gas pipelines, drainage pipes, electrical and telecommunication conduits, mining and slurry pipes, sewer pipes, Irrigation system, fire extinguishing systems, etc. High quality HDPE pipes are manufactured according to the Thai Industrial Standard TIS. 982-2556
uPVC pipes, steel pipes and Ductile Iron pipes are widely used in the industries for water supply, irrigation, electrical and telecommunication conduits. Steel and Ductile Iron pipes were commonly used before the polymer technologies were developed. However, over time, the technology of plastics evolved rapidly and changed the world. The use of uPVC pipes has grown exponentially since then. Factors that uPVC pipes are better choice than the steel or Ductile Iron pipes are as follows
Thai Vinytech (2002) uPVC pipes, other than using for transporting water and other substances, can also be used for creating other useful DIY stuffs to use in your homes both indoor and outdoors. Also these creative products from uPVC pipes can help you earn extra bucks.
TIS. or “Thai Industrial Standards” are standard procedures required for a product or service designed for the benefit of consumers organized by the Thai Industrial Standards Institute or TISI.
Ultraviolet Radiation or UV rays affect the PVC pipe when exposed to sunlight for a long period of time. The UV rays may cause fading in color and also the performance of the pvc pipe to drop.
Thai Vinytech (2002) Co., Ltd manufactures and distributes high quality blue uPVC pipes according to Thailand International Standards TIS.17-2561. Four types of blue uPVC pipes that Thai Vinytech (2002) Co., Ltd manufactures are Blue uPVC Plain-End pipe, Blue uPVC Bell-End socket pipe, Blue uPVC Pipe Bell Mouth and Spigot for Rubber Ring Socket and lastly Blue uPVC Slotted Pipe.
Thai Vinytech (2002) yellow uPVC pipes are produced from high quality Unplasticized Polyvinyl Chloride resin. uPVC is non-conductive, non flammable, durable, and can withstand high heat; it is mostly used as conduits for electric and telecommunication cables. For better UV stability, Titanium Dioxide is added to produce higher-quality pipes that can be used for a longer period of time. Thai Vinytech (2002) yellow PVC pipes are manufactured according to the Thai Industrial Standard TIS.216-2524.
Thailand Industrial Standards require all pvc pipe manufacturers in Thailand to print markings every 2 meters on its pvc pipe to show the information about the pvc pipe manufactured. Nominal pipe size, Pressure Class, TIS. Standard, length of the pipe, year of manufacture, and name of manufacturer are required markings on the pipe.
The lifespan of a PVC pipe depends on the use and the quality of the pipes. High quality pvc pipes produced according to the TIS 17-2561 standards are durable and strong. If the consumer chooses high quality pvc pipes products and installed correctly by certified engineers, we can expect that the pvc pipe can be used for over 50 years.
