Useful Info:

PVC is also referred to as PVCu and uPVC.

Our PVC tubing is all manufactured from only grade A raw material. As a material, polyvinyl chloride - unplasticised has a wide temperature and pressure range coupled with great chemical resistance, making it a very desirable material for pipework.

PVC is odourless and tasteless, making it ideal for transporting potable water.

The PVC pipe in this section is all British Standard sized. This standard is based on the nominal bore of the pipes across the full range and not the diameter. For clarification please select the ‘More Info’ tab on each section. If in doubt please ring us to avoid ordering the wrong pipework.

Our PVC pipes are assembled utilising solvent cement joints, known as plain. We recommend following the manufacturer's guidelines when fitting PVC pipe.

 

If you require any further information then don’t hesitate to ring us here at Pipestock on 0845 634 1053. We’re always happy to help!
