ABS PIPES SYSTEMS
ABS (Acrylonitrile - Butadiene - Styrene) is a modern thermoplastic polymer found in everyday applications such as construction site safety helmets.
Piping Systems manufactured from this polymer display outstanding properties and so makes ABS pipes the first choice for many of the most demanding piping applications.
ABS pipe and fittings are designed and manufactured by Eurapipe to suit extreme climatic conditions.
Piping Systems may be used in more critical applications where other types of plastics could not be considered.
ABS is unaffected by both internal and external chemical attack by a wide range of acids, alkalis, ground water salts and other environmental factors.
ABS offers outstanding resistance to abrasion and erosion from aggressive slurries, which can rapidly damage steel or other traditional pipe materials.
ABS is one of the most weather resistant polymers available today. Successful field tests have been completed on piping systems having been exposed to weathering for over 30 years.
The ABS formulation contains no harmful metallic stablizers and it has been widely used for many years in piping systems for high purity water, medical preparations, food products and soft drinks.
ABS systems are ideal for potable cold water. They conform to World Health Organisation, E.E.C and AS 4020 requirements for potable water reticulation and distribution.
ABS does not suffer from internal corrosion and provides a smooth bore for the life of the piping system.
The smooth bore does not support the formation of scale and slime as do cement based lined products.
