PVC pipes are made out of a material known as polyvinyl chloride, a durable, strong plastic-like substance. Pipes are constructed from this material and used in various applications from plumbing to construction. The pipe is designed to be universal. All pipes are designed around specific requirements to ensure that multiple pipe sections will fit together. The ends of the pipe can either be smooth or grooved (similar to a screw). Additionally, there are several different pipe sizes ranging from very small (one-fourth inch) to very large. Currently, PVC piping counts for the majority of plumbing in the U.S. and is the preferred standard for new construction.
Rigid PVC Pipes are fast replacing the conventional metal pipes in many applications. Use of PVC pipes as electrical conduits is well accepted in household and industrial activities. PVC conduits have been accepted by all Electricity Boards. PVC pipes of different diameters have gained wider acceptance for water supply. Their light weight, low cost, easy installation, non corrosiveness, high tensile strength to withstand high fluid pressure make them ideal for number of purposes. They also offer resistance to most of the chemicals and have excellent electrical and heat insulation properties. Therefore, it is a good project for entrepreneurs to invest.
