Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) pipes are synthetic polymer plastic that is produced on an extensively large scale and their uses worldwide are increasing exponentially. India is one of the top producers of such PVC pipes and there are a number of companies that manufacture these sorts of pipes that help serve a lot of purposes.
Generally speaking, PVC pipes are used for various piping applications and solutions, for example, both in domestic and industrial plumbing water and wastewater. PVC is the third-largest selling plastic commodity and plumbing industry in India that is home to a number of PVC manufacturing companies situated across the country.
From packaged water bottles to our bank cards and household plumbing etc., they’re made from PVC plastic, which can be rigid or soft and flexible.
PVC Pipes and Fittings in India – A Brief Overview
PVC pipes that are available in India (and perhaps, in other countries as well) are generally categorised into four types. These are:
(i) PVC-U (Unplasticised PVC or rigid PVC) – These pipes are used mainly in the transportation of drinking water, soil and waste, sewage and underground drainage, industrial applications, and in making plastic bottles, non-food packaging, food-covering sheets and plastic cards (such as bank or membership cards) etc. PVC-U pipes are 100% recyclable.
On the other hand, the plasticised form of PVC pipes is usually soft and flexible and is mostly used in plumbing, electrical cable insulation, imitation leather, flooring, signage, phonograph records, etc.
(ii) C-PVC (Chlorinated PVC) – These pipes are used mainly in water piping systems in residential as well as commercial construction, and are 100% recyclable.
(iii) PVC-O (Molecularly Oriented PVC) – These pipes are used mainly as pressure pipes for drinking water as well as irrigation and sewer pumping mains, and are 100% recyclable.
(iv) Modified PVC (PVC-M, PVC-HI, PVC-A) – These are thermoplastic alloy pipes which are used mainly in piping systems for the supply of gaseous fuels, such as supplying natural gas and transportation of hydrogen. These pipes are cannot be recycled.
Besides sharing many of the same properties, each type of PVC has its own advantages as well as limitations for different applications which are beyond the scope of this article.
