Useful Info:

Chamfering is the process of reducing the 90° angle of the end of a piece of plastic pipe, to something around 45°. This serves two vital purposes:-

  1. It allows the pipe to pass easier through mechanical fittings i.e. not get caught on the O-ring. However, where pipe liners have been used, chamfering is not required as the liner itself has a chamfered end.
  2. For pipe and fittings that are joined with solvent cement, it allows the cement to form a ring round the end of the pipe, creating a stronger join and massively decreasing the chance of a leak.

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!
